Hey I think we have a bit of an Elvis related controversy
Last week CNN and many other news sources announced that Al Dvorin, the
man who coined the phrase,
"Elvis has left the building.."
died in a car accident on August 23, 2004.
But on October 13, 2002  Horace Lee Logan passed away,
and he too they say, claimed the phrase.
Scroll down Elvis Presley's page to read up on both.
Then you decide.

still worth the visit

Here's Actress Lee Meriwether posing with me and her new book!
The creator of the book cover (Anne Parisi aka "Anneabe") and the creator of what's inside (me), sitting together at the Hollywood Underground Dinner Party. The Queen Mary, Long Beach, California - October 5, 2002.


Usually I don't put any dead non-celebrities on my site, but this time I'm going to make an exception.  Jack Waite was a man that was sick with cancer, after extensive surgery he thought he had beaten the big "C."  Unfortunately he was left with a malfunctioning body plagued with pain.  Perhaps this illness prompted him to look closely at his own mortality and he purchased his own tombstone.  After I added the "Me and my favorite tombstone" page he sent me three photos of his favorite tombstone, his own.  
Due to his illness he rarely left the house. His constant companion was his computer and the people he emailed. I was one of those people. However we lost touch when I changed internet providers. A mutual friend of ours, Lynn Brecka wrote me on Christmas Eve to tell me that he had passed.  As Jack was dying from a heart attack, he took the time to email all his friends to say goodbye.
I have chosen to add his obit to the page where his tombstones are and his good-bye letter and finally the three stories about Jack and his encounter with three celebrities: Jeanette MacDonald, Bing Crosby, and Boxer Jack Demsey.  I was really amazed at the Bing Crosby story. Good old Bing didn't seem to be the nicest man.
