RIP Jack Palance....Today Is Veteran's Day

Yes, that one-armed pushup guy who starred in so many films but will be best remembered as Curley, from the movie City Slickers, has passed away at the age of 87. He will be missed.
And don't forget. Today is Veteran's day. Say a prayer for those men and women, brave souls all, who are in that "hell-on-earth" we know as Iraq. And elsewhere on the globe, protecting us as we hope they can protect themselves amidst a country in the middle of a civil war. Do the Iraqis want us there? Most of them would say no. But the support and prayers for those oh so brave ones will ALWAYS be there. And right here, in my heart. Forever. May your thoughts turn to those special people on this sacred day. Thanks.
