My Favorite Blogger Post of the Day:

Regarding Mitt Romney’s truly stupid comment about how airliners should have openable windows:

Romney ought to confine his remarks to the things he knows best: Having offshore bank accounts, hiding his tax returns, closing American factories and raping companies.

Heh. Indeed.

Randy Savage, the Macho Man, dies in car accident.

From USA Today:

Macho Man

Wrestler Randy ‘Macho Man’ Savage, the Slim Jim pitchman known for his raspy-voiced “Ohh yeah” catch phrase, died in a car accident today in Seminole, Fla., possibly after suffering a heart attack, WTSP reports.

TMZ, which broke the story,reported that Savage lost control of the Jeep because he had a heart attack.

READ:  Official accident report

WTSP quotes the Florida Highway Patrol as saying Savage was driving a Jeep Wrangler that veered out of control, jumped a concrete median and hit a tree.

It says the accident report indicates that he may have suffered a “medical event” before the crash, but that a final ruling would depend on the results of an autopy.

I remember photographing Randy Savage back in my early commercial photography days covering the wrestlers of the, then, WWF (now the WWE). Goodbye, Randy. You were, at the very least, a great entertainer.
