    Both actors who played Father Mulcahy in MASH (the movie and the show) have now died.

    Actor Danny Aiello has died at age 86 "after a brief illness." He's probably most famous for roles in Moonstruck and Do the Right Thing.

    In Memoriam

    In one of my weird psychic moments, I was just thinking of his performance in Moonstruck this morning.

    He was just perfect in it.

    Also great in The Professional.

    Because this hasn't been posted here yet, Neal Peart, the drummer from Rush, died this week. RIP. One of the best drummers of all time.

    I was never really into Rush, but I definitely appreciate their excellent musicianship and rock influence:

    If there was a Canadian Mount Rushmore of drummers he'd be on it. Lots of Tom Sawyer on the radio today!
    A Canadian Slam winner? Inconceivable!

    Buck Henry passed away as well. Old school funny and a great screenwriter.

    Totally agree, I think Neal Peart is in the Top 5 of drummers of all time, the guy was flat out AMAZING. Rush is not one of my favorite bands of all time, but Peart played the drums like few have had.

    My roommate freshman year in college loved Rush. Used to play the album that had New World Man and Limelight on it over and over. Like others, I can get on board with their musicianship, but really not a fave of mine.

    May he rest in peace

    Never warmed up to RUSH. The singer's voice annoyed me. But as said above, as musicians, they were virtuosos.

    We have a running gag at work from a documentary that was on tv once where a roadie said Rush was the third best band of all time (behind Stones and Beatles.) So when they become on radio I always say itís the third best band of all time on radio. One co worker In Particular also hates them.
