"The Rainbow Connection" is the long, cold hand of DEATH!!

I haven't watched "The Muppet Movie" in a bazillion years, but I purchased the DVD recently thinking that The Geej would probably dig it. So yesterday, when she was home from school with hives and a fever (turns out she's actually pretty allergic to the --icillin class of antibiotics; she's doing better now), I popped in the movie and settled in to watch it with her. The thing that struck me most was how OLD I felt when I realized that almost every celebrity that appeared in this movie is now six feet under:

Jim Henson
Edgar Bergen
Milton Berle
James Coburn
Dom DeLuise
Bob Hope
Madeline Khan
Richard Pryor
Telly Savalas
Orson Welles

Crazy, no? Alls I'm saying is that Steve Martin (who plays the cranky waiter) better be having regular check-ups.

Wow. And that makes me sad that you are right. Sigh.
