    Clare Hollingworth, the Daily Telegraph correspondent who broke the news of World War Two, has died in Hong Kong aged 105.
    The British journalist was hailed for her "scoop of the century" after she spotted German tanks on the Polish border in August 1939.

    She was already 27 years old when she delivered that scoop. Holy Cats she lived a long life.

    Tommy Allsup, One of Buddy Holly's Crickets. Legend has it, he lost the coin toss to Ritchie Valens Febuary 3, 1959 in Clear Water, Iowa. Though Dion DiMucci, of Dion And The Belmonts claims he won the coin toss, but balked at the exorbitant charge of $36.00 for the flight! Either way, history was made that night.

    Did I miss it or did TCM not do their usual Hollywood Farewell short this year? You know the one where they detail all those we lost in 2016? I was looking for it.

    61 is way too early to go. Word has it he was on the set of the "Twin Peaks" sequel reprising his role as Albert when he was taken to the hospital.
