Who We Lost In 2006

Dirty Harry at Libertas runs down the list of actors and actresses who passed in this year. They will be missed.

I have a feeling that about thirty years from now we'll be looking at a similar list. And the proportion of those on that list who will truly be missed will be very, very small.

"Toot, Toot, Chugga, Chugga...WTF?"

Greg Page is officially leaving The Wiggles. Permanently. The original word was that he would be taking an extended leave of absence from touring, due to illness. But now it looks like the torch (and the Yellow Jersey) is being passed on to a replacement.

Here you go. Now you can sing those songs, over and over...

OK, full disclosure here. I have a six-year old who is an absolute Wiggles freak. So a major change like this is going to have a profound ripple effect in my home life.

I hope that Greg's health issues are not serious. Clearly the grueling schedule has taken its toll. And I wish Sam Moran the best of luck. He's got big shoes (and a big shirt) to fill.

The biggest winners in this situation: eBay sellers. Take my word on that one.
