Jay Thomas - RIP

Back in the day we made a point of eulogizing our favorites when they passed on. Sadly, we have another opportunity to do so.

Jay Thomas was a journeyman actor. That's the polite way of saying he was never a star. Fair enough. Truthfully, I only really remember him from a handful of things... Mainly Mr Holland's Opus.

What I do remember though is that every Christmas he would show up on Letterman and tell The Greatest Showbiz Story ever told. It's a classic. I'm not one for traditions but watching that was one of my odd little Christmas traditions. I regretted the loss of it when Dave called it quits (he had a great interview on Howard Stern the other day by the way... Stern's a good interviewer when he's not being a pervert). I regret it even more, now.

Fare thee well, kemosabe!

18 Steamer Trunks for Her, a Duffle Bag For Him


Other than billions of dollars, what does the new Mrs. Mnuchin see in her hubby?  A baggage handler apparently.  What are the odds she has a whip in those suitcases to discipline her luggage boy?  Not that we begrudge them that, mind you.  What SecTreas and the new Mrs. SecTreas choose to do in the privacy of their own sex dungeon honeymoon suite is entirely their own affair.  Mozel tov we say.  Live and let live.
