McCoy Tyner, jazz pianist, has passed age 81. Dude was a thinker with giant hands to express the piano. He did that with Coltrane.

Mort Drucker


Mr. Drucker, who specialized in illustrating Mad’s movie and television satires, inspired several generations of cartoonists. “To me, he’s the guy,” the caricaturist Drew Friedman said. “I used to imitate his work in Mad when I was a kid. I wanted to be Mort Drucker; I even loved his name.”

I lost my mother 3 weeks ago, and it's beginning to set in harder now. Life has been crazy, and then she died within a month of her recurrence of liver cancer. She was 87 years old. I loved her a great deal and more and more I'm coming to know that any streak of compassion and care for humanity I have was inherited from her.

She was special early on, having graduated with a Master's in math education from Bowling Green State University Before she married Dad, she was employed as a math calculator by General Electric Corp. in Cinncinnati, Ohio. This is before they had computers, and she did many of the calculations fot their prototype J-79 jet engine, which would later be mass produced for the Boeing 707. -

She was a wonderful human being, teaching adult literacy in the Appalachians when my sister an I were off to school. And she did it as a volunteer. Unpaid. She stood for doing the 'right thing' in the world, and stood by her decisions in life.

Mom, I'll miss you. I love you. You 'done good'.

your son.

Phyllis Lyon, name-sake of Lyons-Martin Health Services, passed away at 95 years old. Phyllis was a journalist and married to Del Martin. They met in 1950 and moved in together on Castro St. in San Francisco in 1953. They co-founded the Daughters of Bilitis in 1955, the first social and political organization for lesbians in the US. They were also president and editor of the The Ladder, the first nationally distributed lesbian publication in the US and the primary method of communication for the Daughters of Bilitis. They were among the first inductees into the LGBT Journalists Hall of Fame. Del and Phyllis played a major role in the decriminalization of homosexuality and ending employment discrimination on the basis of sexuality in SF in the 60's and 70's. They were married in 2004 and were the first same-sex wedding to take place in San Francisco after gay marriage became legalized.

to burner von braun and lucky 420:

Thank you got your show of support. Jt means a lot.


My Dad is approaching 90, and is quite healthy. He goes up and down the stairs several times a day at the home he owns, and still goes to workouts weekly at the Health Care Center's outpatient care facility. He has meals delivered if he doesn't cook, an d he's hired a man to do lawn care and has a maid twice a week. He and Mom traveled all over the world, and he considers himself a lucky man especially having two successful kids and a successful marriage of over 60 years. He's OK with Mom's passing, and we're both gratified that Mom passed away peacefully and not in pain.

Bless you and your family in this tough time. Both my frail, elderly parents are locked down in separate homes, unable to see the people they love. I pray they make it through or pass peacefully like your loved ones!

I'm so sorry to hear of your loss.
Sounds like your mother had a great life, and 87 years is nothing to sneeze at!

I hope you're taking care, and doing well. I've been wondering how your work and studies have been going, having not heard from you in quite a while.

To JayBobBoy and PatschL:

Thank you for your condolences.

Patsch, my dear friend I miss you and think of you two or three times a month with fondness. I have now retired. There's a story in that, because I still went back to the University of Missouri to pursue a PhD in geology. I'm currently sitting out a semester, was about to go to the hospital for surgery to fix my abdominal aortic anyeursm (a genetic thing) with a stent when this coronavirus thing became big. My surgeon cancelled my surgery, so I don't know when I'll be going back now. The hard part is the isolation. I go out once every two weeks for groceries, but that's it.

Sorry for your loss ^Rhino.
It's a tough thing, even though we know it's inevitable and losing parents is "the way of things". I hope you find peace with it all.
Also sorry to hear about your health issue. I hope you can get a stent and be all fixed up soon.

^Rhino, Sorry for your loss. My father was at GE there in the late 50s.

Funny story, I had a high school physics teacher that was fired from GE for his calculations. They built a test engine with a steel turbine but used the titanium coefficient of thermal expansion. When they fired it up, once the blades warmed up, they expanded and locked to the housing, blowing up the engine and damaging the test cell.

To ygmir and some seeing eye"

Thank you sincerely for your expressions of condolences. It is people like you and everyone else at Burningman that has made me an even more compassionate human being, able to 'do the right thing' on a daily basis.

Remember Jerry Corbetta and Sugarloaf? They were a group that plays a song think describes my stent situation pretty accurately. This is TWICE now that they've postponed my surgery. You probably know the song -



At least it's not a long distance call.

I am so sorry, Rhino and Gaminwench.

I am wrecked to report that my friend Panda, of Stag Camp, died in an accident this week. She was very funny, forthright, beautiful, and kind. I loved her. She was such a character, and I'll miss her forever.
