That's Jim's singing voice, for sure, but funny how he doesn't belt this one out with Pyle's southern accent!
He was also great in the Saturday morning, Sid & Marty Krofft show, "The Lost Saucer" with Ruth Buzzi. Good memories.
Speaking of memories, how about him singing "Back Home Again in Indiana" at all the openings of the Indy 500? Here he is in 1977 (the year of "Star Wars"):
The last line from the Kennedy/Spielberg produced Brief History of Time:
Stephen Hawking: If we do discover a complete theory of the universe, it should in time be understandable in broad principle by everyone, not just a few scientists. Then we shall all - philosophers, scientists, and just ordinary people - be able to take part in the discussion of why it is that we and the universe exist. If we find the answer to that, it would be the ultimate triumph of human reason. For then we would know the mind of God.
It's not thread drift if "rest in peace" is a threat.
Are you referring to the Lee Atwater Invitational Dead Pool? Remember when Shia was going to play Atwater who died at 40? I've learned to stop betting on immortals. For instance, some time this year at John McCain's funeral the president will hand a folded flag to his mother (106).
