And now we've lost Dennis Hopper

Most of y'all heard that by now. He passed away Saturday. So in a few days' time we've lost Art Linkletter, Gary Coleman and Dennis Hopper.

He was quite the memorable sort, no matter what he was in: be it Easy Rider or Speed or the first season of 24 or even the otherwise atrocious Super Mario Brothers movie (where he played King Koopa).

Somehow, his recitation of Rudyard Kipling's poem "If" seems a most appropriate tribute to his life and career...

Rest in peace Mr. Hopper. And were I a drinking man, I'd open up a can of Pabst Blue Ribbon and raise a toast in your memory.
