    RIP Sidney Sheldon

    LOS ANGELES - Sidney Sheldon, who won awards in three careers — Broadway theater, movies and television — then at age 50 turned to writing best-selling novels about stalwart women who triumph in a hostile world of ruthless men, has died. He was 89.

    10 There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, 11 or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. 12 For all who do these things are an abomination to the Lord.

    Rest in Peace Sheldon... I read almost every one of his books and adored his TV shows growing up. One very talented man.

    awwwwwww sad news! I love his books. Recently on a trip I bought a book of his I hadn't seen before...I got halfway thru it when I realized it was his biography! he had written it totally different from other's biography's I've read. Until I read the book I didn't realize he did "I Dream of Jeanie" either.
