This is a hard one for me. I knew Jim Gandolfini. He worked for me as a bouncer at the RUsty Screw Tavern in Rutgers University in the early 80s. I was there from 1976-1987. He always said he wanted to be an actor. We all called him "Buck". I never knew why. At least he got to realize his dream.

Stapleton, who was 90, passed away of natural causes.
Having already established a career during the 1950s and early '60s for playing nosy neighbor roles in such Broadway smashes as Damn Yankees, Funny Girl and Bells Are Ringing, in which she played the owner of the titular answering service, Stapleton entered the TV pantheon with her high-pitched comic voice (which was a gross exaggeration of her own), perfect timing (especially when Edith would be slow to catch on to something) and unrelenting love for her husband Archie Bunker (even while overlooking his bigotry, which she never shared).

The custom skinned Android-based smartphone. The Stylistic S-01 is designed to be easier for older people to use. Fujitsu is bringing the device to France in partnership with France Telecom/Orange in June but was showing it off at Mobile World Congress, where we went hands on.
