He had a long and busy career and will be missed.

Charlie Liteky, Army chaplain in Vietnam who gave back Medal of Honor, dies

SAN FRANCISCO -- Charlie Liteky, an Army chaplain in Vietnam who won the Medal of Honor for rescuing more than 20 wounded men but later gave it back in protest and became a peace activist, has died.

Longtime friend Richard Olive said Liteky died Friday night at the Veterans Administration Hospital in San Francisco. He was 85.

The Army awarded Liteky the highest military decoration for his actions on Dec. 6, 1967, when his company came under intense fire from an enemy battalion in Bien Hoa province. Despite painful wounds in the neck and foot, Liteky carried more than 20 men to the landing zone to be evacuated during the fierce firefight.

“Noticing another trapped and seriously wounded man, Chaplain Liteky crawled to his aid,” the Army’s official citation reads. “Realizing that the wounded man was too heavy to carry, he rolled on his back, placed the man on his chest and through sheer determination and fortitude crawled back to the landing zone using his elbows and heels to push himself along.” ...

Twenty years after his heroic actions in Vietnam, Liteky left the Medal of Honor - awarded under the name of Angelo J. Liteky - and a letter to President Ronald Reagan at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington in protest of the country’s foreign policy in Central America, where U.S.-backed dictators were fighting bloody wars against left-leaning rebels.

This makes me particularly sad. I loved the Roches, Maggie's songs were a big reason.

Maggie Roche, the songwriter whose serene alto anchored the close harmonies of the Roches, her trio with her sisters, Terre and Suzzy, died on Saturday. She was 65.

Suzzy Roche said in a statement that the cause was breast cancer. She did not say where her sister died.

“She was a private person, too sensitive and shy for this world, but brimming with life, love, and talent,” Suzzy Roche wrote on the Roches’ Facebook page. “She was smart, wickedly funny, and authentic — not a false bone in her body — a brilliant songwriter, with a distinct unique perspective, all heart and soul.”

OMG Mary Tyler Moore at 80.

We revered her and the show. Damn.

I hope the next Women's March honors Mary, she broke TV's glass ceiling. A true pioneer. There's so much to say about Mary and women's rights and advances.

Hope we hear from Betty White soon.

They cut from Mary's passing to live Donald about the wall being crazy and lying. Hate this!

I am so sad. I love Mary Tyler Moore. Fun fact: My ex-husband had a crush on her. I totally got it, no way could I be jealous. He had a crush on me, too, so that probably helped :lol: . She was a comic genius, and also beautiful. I will have to send my ex a note.

Drummer Butch Trucks, a founding member of iconic Southern rock outfit the Allman Brothers Band, died Tuesday in West Palm Beach, Florida. He was 69.

“The Trucks and Allman Brothers Band families request all of Butch’s friends and fans to please respect our privacy at this time of sadness for our loss,” a representative for Trucks wrote in a statement. “Butch will play on in our hearts forever.”

Trucks founded the Allman Brothers Band in 1969 with guitarists Duane Allman and Dickey Betts, fellow drummer Jai Johanny “Jaimoe” Johanson, keyboardist Gregg Allman, and bassist Berry Oakley. “When Butch came along,” Betts told Guitar World in 2007, “he had that freight train, meat-and-potatoes kind of thing … he had the power thing we needed.”

Trucks played a crucial role in developing the group’s sound, which fused country and blues with the era’s burgeoning jam band scene — and their boundary-pushing aesthetic yielded one of rock’s defining live albums, 1971’s At Fillmore East, which captured a weekend of shows recorded at the famed Manhattan venue.

“We were in another universe,” Trucks told Rolling Stone last year when recalling the band’s early years. “We were out spreading the gospel of this music we had discovered. We never thought that we would be more than an opening act.”

Though Duane died in a 1971 motorcycle crash, the group remained intermittently active for decades and Trucks played on each of their 12 studio albums, including their final effort, 2003’s Hittin’ the Note.

In 1999, the Allman Brothers Band brought Trucks’ nephew, Derek Trucks, into the fold; the guitarist played with the band for 15 years.

Trucks is survived by his wife, four children, and four grandchildren.

Ironic as he played Winston Smith in the 1984 version of "1984" in that he passes with the ascension of the Short Fingered Vulgarian Trump the Rump.

John Hurt may be best remembered for playing Caligula in 'I Claudius', for twice playing Quentin Crisp - "one of the Stately Homos of England", and for his multitude of supporting roles in film, TV, and stage. He was truly devoted to his work, even sacrificing a couple of teeth to make himself look authentic for a film role. Although he played very stereotypic homosexuals several times - he had been romantically connected with one of the most beautiful fashion models in Europe and was the father of two sons.

First became aware of John Hurt from the 1966 film A Man for All Seasons. He played Richard Rich who in real life managed to serve every English monarch from Henry VIII thru Elizabeth I by switching his beliefs as needed. As Wikipedia says- "Rich has had a highly negative reputation for immorality, financial dishonesty, double dealing, perjury and treachery that is seldom matched in all of English history." Hurt managed a wonderfully understated performance that showed Rich's lack of moral compass.

In the days of walking precincts, I was her precinct captain. I was happy to knock on her door, every time. "Barbara H. Katt," voter. She was remarkably unassuming, unHollywood. And warm. And an incredible voice, so deep! She died at home where I'd knocked so many times. I drove by last night, I couldn't resist. Light on, on the porch. The house, dark. A long productive life.
