I guess since hearing about Cash, Ritter, and Goz wasn't bad enough I went online to see if their was any new news only to find out that Larry Hovis (aka Sgt. Carter on Hogan's Heroes) died Wednesday. They said he died of cancer.
That really sucks to find out. I loved Hogan's Heroes and it doesn't help when 3 other great people have died that same week.

I thought these things were supposed to come in threes. This is five, if you count Warren Zevon.
"These are the same arguments, the precise same arguments that were being made before the war. Itís going to be a quagmire. What is the plan? When do we get out? How much is it going to cost? Someone in the military might get his hair mussed. We heard all these arguments." ----Ann Coulter, supporting our troops. Click here for a tribute to all Iraq's bad hair days to date.
Maybe it's be three threes. I'm thinking Pope John Paul II, Scott Bakula and... let's say Bill Apter.
I mean, I hope I'm wrong, but... geez enough with the dying, Hollywood.
Unless it's Pauly Shore dying in a messy and entirely preventable way, so I can make a tasteless Halloween costume out of it.

For some reason, I'd always picture him going out in an explosion of some sort, to fit the mold of his character. And, does this mean Richard Dawson is the only Hogan's Heroes regular survivor?
Time to do a Red Sox pennant chase supply list: Arsenic: check. Cyanide: check. Booze: check. Fully loaded gun for full chamber Russian Roulette: check. Ok, I'm prepared, let the pennant race commence.

Ivan Dixon and Robert Clary are still alive and working as far as I know. Dixon directs and Clary was doing soaps awhile ago, but I haven't seen him lately. Kenneth Washington (who replaced Dixon in the violent, shot on film final 1970 season) may still be around, but I don't know.
Incidentally, my brother got me the Hogan's Heroes collectors plate from the Danbury Mint (classy!) a few years ago for xmas and it had Washington instead of Dixon--odd.
