      For me too. I couldn’t click on this one until right now, and I thank you for saying what I feel.

    I recall Richard Belzer from his stand up days in the 1970’s.
    Smart, funny and had control of the crowd from the second he took the stage.
    Turned into a fine actor. Interesting man. Well known to be kind and no ego.
    He reached out to young and not so young new performers just trying to make a living.

    He came from a brutal childhood filled with violence directed at he and his brother.
    His personal life for many years was filled with loss. Both his Father and only sibling passed before him.

    R.I.P. Richard Belzer.

  4. Smile says:

    I loved him on Stern.

  5. Lady D says:

    Mankind is less for his passing.

    Munch was my favorite on SVU. Richard Belzer and Ice-T aka Fin Tutuola were amazing as partners.

    • Agreatreckoning says:

      Pretty much my fav too on SVU. So many good quotes. He and Fin-legends as partners-a good/serious dynamic. So many favorite quotes.

      1. (as a minion of cat-lol) They’re searching a suspect’s apartment for catevidence:
      Fin: I don’t see a cat.
      Munch: That doesn’t mean anything. They’re freaky little creatures. They lurk.
      seconds later Munch finds cat (cat owners know you can search a small room for 15 minutes and no sign of cat. Minutes later, they stroll out of room you just searched)
      Munch: Oh, there you are, you demonic little furball.
      Jeffries: Is there anything you just accept?
      Munch: Yeah….compliments.
      Munch: There should be a special level of hell for this pus-sucking gangrenous malignancy of a mental amoeba. (sounds like he’s not only describing a heinous criminal but also RR’s and the members of the BM)
      ———- My first memory of you is from the movie Night Shift with Henry Winkler & Michael Keaton. I was 15 when I went to that movie with my parents(and some siblings) and we laughed.

      Bye Munch.

  7. Deering24 says:

    🙁 He was terrific on Homicide. And he and Ice-T on SVU were consistently hilarious.

    • The Recluse says:

      I loved that his character Munch popped up in other series, like X-Files.

    • TigerMcQueen says:

      Loved, loved, loved him on Homicide. Munch will always be HLOTS for me, no matter how well known the character is for other shows. So sad to read this (esp as I’m a Baltimorian now).

  8. TIFFANY says:

    Between Belzer’s death and reading that President Carter is in hospice, the heart hurt a little this weekend.

  9. Emily_C says:

    His last words were perfect. Dylan Thomas would have loved them.

  10. B says:

    A lot of Tadashi dresses are made out of really thick polyester knit too, like what your grandmother would have had pants in from way back from before you were born but, gosh darn it, they still just had so much life in them.

  11. Flower says:

    How ironic that Finn referenced Munch is Friday’s episode.

    I wonder if the SVU family knew he was ill and wanted to send a nod to him along with Finn.

  12. Enis says:

    Richard Belzer wasn’t a class act. He was a conspiracy theorist who palled around with Alex Jones and was even partly responsible for his Sandy Hook lies.

    • SpankyB says:

      I ran into him at a restaurant in LA years ago, before his SVU work but after his Hulk Hogan debacle, and he was very creepy. I couldn’t get away from him fast enough, except he kept following my friend and me. The valet guy had to literally step between us to get him to back off. I’ve avoided any show he’s been in ever since.

    • HeyKay says:

      Mr. Belzer wrote or co-authored 4 books involving various conspiracy plots.
      None of which I have read.
      Belzer on Howard Stern was a good time, while I was stuck in traffic.

  13. etso says:

    This is going to be a hard year.

  14. HeyKay says:

    Re: Former President Jimmy Carter.
    I’ve read his books, he was my first vote in a Prez election.

    Mr. and Mrs. Carter, along with his Mom all did a huge amount of work in the volunteer/H4H community, they are very decent people .
    I’d prefer Mr. Carter to any politician we have these days.
    Diplomacy, serious thought before action.

    God Bless, Mr. and Mrs. Carter. Married 72 years.

    Nikki Haley is prime. A prime right winger. She’s hanging around failed Congress candidate Bolduc here in New Hampshire. Bolduc is an election denier, antvaxxer who claims kids are using kitty litter in the classroom.

    You are who you hang with. Haley is hanging with the
    Lunatic Crowd.

    • Frippery says:

      My family and I live in South Carolina, Haley’s home turf. One of absolutely the only political things a diehard Republican relative and I agree on is that Nikki Haley was an absolutely incompetent leader. She is not beloved.

  16. Erin says:

    Don Lemon’s comments were disgusting, from the first one to the doubling down and his “apology” was anything but. Will never look at him the same.

  17. HeyKay says:

    IMO, Don Lemon is trying to get fired.
    He appears to be saying anything he hopes will help him get fired.
    IRL Fired vs. I quit = Unemployment benefits.

    Of course, these days it is difficult to tell who is truly awful vs. attention seeking awful.

    • Erin says:

      When people show you who they are believe them. Honestly, for everyday people that makes sense and that’s how we think because unemployment benefits are something we need. Is Don lemon going to sink and end up homeless if he quits CNN? I don’t think so and I don’t think he would have a hard time finding employment if he did either.

    We saw Ant Man this weekend. The 12 year old loved it. The thing that was really strange to me and underlines the points in the review above is that it blatantly ripped off several Disney movies to the point that it just seems they are really running out of ideas. The quantum realm looks exactly like the most recent Star Wars films and there was a scene that was an exact replica of one from Wreck it Ralph of all movies. I agree on E. Lily…why was she even there? She didn’t do much and what she did was obviously phoned in…she wasn’t even trying.
