He's colder than that, now.

When DFW died, Chorozzo made a disrespectful comment, and I slowly willed him into the grave over it. I didn't love Prince less than I loved DFW.

jesus would somebody fucking just die already so we can get a break in the music snobbery here?

(CNN) -- Six teens drowned after they waded into unfamiliar waters and fell into a deeper part of the Red River in Shreveport, Louisiana, officials said.One additional member of the group was rescued, Shreveport Assistant Fire Chief Fred Sanders told CNN.He said no one in the group of teens, who ranged in age from 13 to 18, could swim.The victims were part of two families, and three of the victims were brothers, he said.Divers on scene said the river bed drops from a shallow area to 20 feet, Sanders said.People nearby heard the teens screaming for help, CNN affiliate KSLA reported.Local ministers were in the area counseling grief-stricken family members Monday evening, KSLA said."Please lift this family up in prayer," Shreveport Mayor Cedric Glover told KSLA.I couldn't help but reply to one of the comments on the CNN page about this: tijThe river should have a lot of big signs around the river such as the following:1. NO SWIMMING AT ANYTIME.2. NO WADING AT ANYTIME.3. NO LIFEGUARD ON DUTY- DO NOT SWIM OR WADE4. DANGER: ALIGATORS IN RIVER. STAY AWAY FROM THE SHORES.5. DANGER! BOTTOM OF RIVER DROPS FROM SHALLOW TO 20 FEET WITHIN ONE STEP.6. DANGER! BOTTOM OF RIVER UNSTABLE.7. SWIMMING AND WADING AT THIS RIVER IS AGAINST THE LAW. sandwedgeI agree. Someone should sue the river.

I agree. Someone should sue the river.
It's the cities or the governments responsibility to make people aware of such obvious threats, and if they are not aware of the threats they should've invested in educating the idiots responsible for peoples safety around rivers. Therefor they are to blame and should be prosecuted.

I was also going to post something along the lines of "What about the personal responsibility of not going swimming in a river when you can't actually ****ing swim?"Sounds like some Darwinism in effect:
http://www.ksla.com/Global/story.asp?S=12913620&hpt=T2...Crawford said all the bodies were found in about 25 feet of water and were within 20 feet of each other.Caddo Parish Sheriff Spokeswoman Cindy Chadwick said family members including two adults were out on the Red River swimming.She said at some point they walked out into the river and encountered was a sudden drop off in the water. One of the adults was able to throw a life-vest to one of the teenagers.The other children could be heard by others screaming for help, then they disappeared into the water. "They were out here with some adults. But unfortunately, neither the children nor the adults could swim," said Shreveport Assistant Fire Chief Fred Sanders...
How about holding the Adults who were there responsible?

I heard about this the other day. Apparently none of the adults their with the kids could swim either.

I looked him up just because you made me curious. I really liked what I heard, but I love country music in general, I can sit and listen to Johnny Cash all day without getting bored. Anyway the ones who aren't focussed on commercial shit always go silently, sadly.R.I.P Larry & Johnny

QFT.Seriously, and no offense to the poster who said the city is at fault, but come on. If you're stupid enough to enter a body of water of any kind and you do not know how to swim, you deserve this kind of fate. That rational of thinking (its the governments fault) is ludicrous. Let's look at something that is much more common sense. A quick google search (although not a thorough one, maybe got through 3 pages) revealed no deaths this way: Jumping off a building, attempting to fly. We as humans do not know how to fly. Yes, we can learn how to fly (using other devices, such as a plane or parachute or the such), but we are unable to fly. Granted this isn't an even comparison, because swimming you can actually do without a device, but if you can't fcking swim, get an intertube, floaties, or something. It's YOUR responsibility, nobody else. Don't try and blame anyone else. You're the idiot. In hindsight, this comparison kind of sucks. But seriously, Darwin, keep on truckin.

I remember him from My Cousin Vinny. I think he just had a small role (witness?) but that's what I associate him with, although of course I've seen him in a million things.

Correct.I also remember him from Entrapment with Connery and Catherine Zeta-Jones.
