Miss Penny Lane

I always tell the girls, never take it seriously.
If ya never take it seriously, ya never get hurt.
Ya never get hurt, ya always have fun...
And if you ever get lonely, just go to the record store and visit your friends.

Chris Penn Found Dead in His Home

Chris Penn was only 43 years old (although some reports say 40) and there were no immediate signs of foul play. Hmmm...he was an awfully large man, so maybe he had health problems. We all know him from Footloose and True Romance, as well as Reservoir Dogs and Mulholland Falls. He was recently on an episode of "Law & Order: Criminal Intent," which is where I really noticed how bloated and unhealthy he looked (weight, complexion, etc).

Well, condolences go out to his brothers Sean and Michael, as well as the rest of the family.
