2017 Wk. Two Morbidity
& Mortality Report

Wk. of 8-14 January 2017:
Dick Gautier, 85 (Five great-grandchildren!) on Friday the 13th.
Gautier, who started his career as a stand-up comic, received a Tony nomination for playing Conrad Birdie, the character based on Elvis Presley, in the memorable, original 1960 production of Bye, Bye Birdie, starring Dick Van Dyke.

The handsome actor appeared as Hymie on just six episodes of Get Smart over four seasons, yet he was one of the spy spoof's most popular characters.
And many others I never knew whom no one will remember or even have the slightest idea of in just a few generations; if you wanna throw in failed institutions, the 146-yrs. touring Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey®. Touring by train? Not the greatest financial model. Seen by this reporter at the Cow Palace when he was young.

Half-way through January & few indications of increased post-holiday mortality. We are very disappointed.

Which one, Pops or new Congresswoman Liz? (Yeah, we can probably have both.)
