I'm not quite sure. I was never really that good at grasping the whole deceased-alive distinction.

To be honest, until a few weeks ago, I was pretty certain that the guy from "My Favorite Martian" was still kicking around somewhere in Hollywood.

There really should be a website or something.

Don't ya think?

I thought Arafat died weeks ago...apparently not!

He was apparently waiting on a Judas kiss from Jacques Chirac.

There is a website, sort of. Go to the AP picture site and do a search with the keyword 'obit'. The use the obit keyword on all pix of anyone whose picture is put on the wire at the time of their death. They are good about posting file photos of the deceased for use by members around the world. I don't know the link for the AP picture wire that is available to the public.

Enjoyed that. The lady with the 72 virgins was a bit unfair to that lady. Is she someone we should dispise?

I read Jacques Strap gave him a sloppy french kiss.

I hate to rain on anybodies parade but wasn't Johnny Cash passionately opposed to the war? I remember being very disappointed in him when I first read it. I know that Rosanne was quite vocal and openly supportive of the Dixie Chicks and Micheal Moore. If in doubt, just go to her page. Sorry folks. It is very disappointing to me too. http://rosannecash.com/monthly.html

Helen Thomas. Oh. I know who she is but I don't have a TV so I haven't actually seen her for a long time. Not to be disrespect to how someone looks but when I saw her a long time ago at a press conference she looked a lot worse then the picture you have of her. I understand now why you used her picture. LOL

One thing is clear from reading ALL of Johnny Cash's biographies and also June Carter Cash's and Rosanne Cash's interviews...Johnny Cash was against Vietnam and against the Iraq War.

I don't know what his position was on OIF-so I'll take your word for it-but I do know that initially at least, he supported the War on Terror.

His opposition to the Vietnam War is pretty well known-since his most enduring, famous song focuses on it-but he also supported various veterans groups, and the servicemen, throughout his entire career.

The thing that stands out about Johnny Cash is his remarkable ability to transcend petty political or religious divisions.

He seemed to be someone who stood up for what he believed was right, regardless of the perception among elite opinion, or even the public at large.

There's an adage in Nicaragua that in that country, there are no Nicaraguans, just conservatives and liberals.

It's sad to see this country inevitably careening towards that end, but that's the way it looks to me.

There are very few plain-old "Americans" today, and almost none to speak of in this country's entertainment industry, which could just as well be located in Dubai, or Seoul, or Paris.

Johnny Cash was a patriot in the most complete sense of the term, in that he didn't arrive at predetermined stances that were driven by ideology, but decided what he thought was the best policy based upon personal experience, and what would be best for most Americans, irrespective of their political persuasion.

He also didn't try to force his opinion down the collective throat of his audience, something that today's stars could learn from.

I think that's why figures like Cash are so universally admired in this country, regardless of whether you like them politically, or personally, or even enjoy their particular musical genre.

Cash seemed to eclipse all of those divisions and served as a unifying figure of a sort, across generational boundaries.

I remember from the national news back in 1970 a story about a Cash visit to the White House. Nixon wanted him to preform his song "Welfare Cadillac" and Johnny refused.

LOL.

Yeah, I remember hearing that anecdote somewhere.

That's one Johnny Cash song that I have never heard, although I do have the "Legend" 4 CD set lying around somewhere.

I don't know how many people here watched it, but there was a tribute concert for Johnny Cash-I think it was broadcast on cable-held after he had come out of convalescence, which starred some moderately popular rock and bluegrass-and even one reggae-singers, along with traditional Cash collaborators, like Kris Kristtoferson.

Anyway, it was pretty cool.

The Mavericks did an amazing cover of "Man in Black," his late wife performed "Ring of Fire," and he came out at the last minute to perform "Folsom Prison Blues."
