Ref: Leslie Nielsen.
The Naked Gun and the short lived Police Squad series were very funny. I remember when Nielson and his sidekick went to interview a woman whose husband was murdered. It was very late and Nielson said, "we would have come earlier but your husband wasn't dead then."

Two stars of one of my guides, The Untouchables, passed on within 8 days of each other. Paul Picerni died on January 12 at the age of 88 and Bruce Gordon passed away on January 20. Mr. Gordon was just 12 days shy of his 95th birthday. I bet that right now in the Great Beyond Picerni is in a conference with Robert Stack planning a raid on one of Gordon's speakeasies. It's hard to keep a good Untouchable down.

Jean Jennings Bartik, the last of six women programmers who debugged and operated the earliest general-purpose computer, has died.

Bartik graduated from Northwest Missouri State Teachers College in 1945 as the school's one math major.

She took a train to Philadelphia to work for the military.

There, she learned ballistics calculations and was quickly hired to work on the ENIAC, created during the war by University of Pennsylvania scientists John Mauchly and J. Presper Eckert Jr.

Bartik and her colleagues debugged the computer, which weighed 30 tons, contained about 18,000 vacuum tubes and completed the same work the women "computers" did but in a fraction of the time.

Bartik went on to work on the BINAC and UNIVAC computers and to work in the fledging high-tech publishing field. Her children and grandchildren all grew up to be good with numbers, she said in February.

Bartik and the other ENIAC programmers didn't receive much attention for their work after WWII, but their story was recently featured in the documentary "Top Secret Rosies: The Female Computers of World War II." Bartik wrote an autobiography that is being edited; Rickman said he hopes it will be published this year.

They don't make journalists like this anymore.

Creed C. Black, editor and newspaper publisher and the former president of Knight Foundation, has passed away.
...
A graduate of Northwestern’s Medill School of Journalism, Creed was a reporter or editor in Paducah (Ky.), the U. S. Army’s Stars & Stripes, Nashville, Savannah, Wilmington, (Del.), Chicago and Philadelphia. His career was long and distinguished but perhaps never so remarkable as when he was editor and publisher of the Lexington (Ky.) Herald-Leader, where he set standards for courage and investigative journalism. He was the embodiment of the journalistic ideal of a full, accurate, contextual search for truth.
