Study: Iraqis May Experience Sadness When Friends, Relatives Die | The Onion - America’s Finest News Source
A field study released Monday by the University of North Carolina School of Public Health suggests that Iraqi citizens experience sadness and a sense of loss when relatives, spouses, and even friends perish, emotions that have until recently been identified almost exclusively with Westerners.

“We were struck by how an Iraqi reacts to the sight of the bloody or decapitated corpse of a family member in a not unlike an American, or at the very least a Canadian, would,” said Dr. Jonathan Pryztal, chief author of the study. “In addition to the rage, bloodlust, and hatred we already know to dominate the Iraqi emotional spectrum, it appears that they may have some capacity, however limited, for sadness.”

Hehe - Brilliant.

Letterman sidekick Calvert DeForest dead at 85 - Los Angeles Times
Calvert DeForest, the roly-poly character actor with the black-framed glasses and seemingly clueless delivery who developed a cult following as Larry “Bud” Melman on “Late Night with David Letterman” in the 1980s, has died. He was 85.

DeForest, who continued appearing with Letterman under his own name after the late-night comedian moved to CBS in the early 1990s and last appeared on the show in 2002, died Monday in a hospital in Babylon, Long Island, N.Y. after a long illness, said a spokesman for Worldwide Pants, which produces “The Late Show With David Letterman.”

“Everyone always wondered if Calvert was an actor playing a character, but in reality he was just himself–a genuine, modest and nice man,” Letterman said in a statement Wednesday. “To our staff and to our viewers, he was a beloved and valued part of our show, and we will miss him.”


I had forgotten about Larry Bud… RIP
