    The cult of personality. The inventor of the stent died six months ago. He saved millions of people. Who was he?

    That said. Anyone who passes at 57 is a tragedy.

    Stunning news, way too young. What a nice and lovely lady she was. Really enjoyed her role in ‘For Love of the Game’. May she RIP.

    I think most agree celebs are massively overvalued, but they are also names you knew, grew up with and felt emotions through in many cases. It’s a natural visceral reaction. In Kelly’s case many also knew them from Ocala, or even if they didn’t, considered her a neighbor or one of them.

    Didn't he keep a Boeing 707 or 727 parked in his backyard?

    Lotta gals in Hollywood, but for some reason she always seemed like a grounded human being. What a shame. This time last year I was in Navarre holding my brother in law when he passed from cancer. Horrible. Blessings

    Go Gators.

    Yes it does.

    Wouldn't it be cool if the US could regain it's medical stature by whipping this invidious monster!

    Died from terminal breast cancer. I believe they were Scientologists. I wonder if they decided against Modern traditional care. Chemo, etc. Bad disease so many seem to get. RIP

    Yes they kept at least two jets in north Ocala. Big one and a Lear type I believe.

    He is quite the accomplished pilot. I know that he is certified to fly the big Boeing as well as the Lear.

    Not positive, but I thought that the Travolta's bought their estate from the guy that started/owned Nautilus gym equipment back in the day. I think that's his ultralight on the right. Doh!
