The wonderful actor Paul Sorvino, at age 83.

Three movie mobsters gone in recent months:  Sorvino, James Caan, and Ray Liotta.  RIP all.

...and Tony Sirico (Paulie Walnuts)
I am Dr. Thunderdome and I run Bartertown.

Forsake the foolish, and live; and go in the way of understanding.

Reprove not a scorner, lest they hate thee: rebuke the wise, and they will love thee.

Give instruction to the wise, and they will be yet wiser: teach the just, and they will increase in learning.

Historian David McCollough:

RIP.

M.
Tonight's PBS "News Hour" featured a 2011 interview with him:
https://www.pbs.org/newshour/show/remembering-the-life-and-work-of-pulitzer-prize-winning-historian-david-mccullough
Besides the books, he's the narrator in Ken Burns's "The Civil War" documentary.
I read and own The Greater Journey (2011) about Americans abroad in Paris during the 19th century.
He was at the National Book Festival at the Washington Convention Center one year.

I heard he's also the narrator in the movie Seabiscuit.
