Very sad. He was terrific in Blade Runner, and I'm sure his other roles. RIP.

Longtime voice of Minnie Mouse Russi Taylor passes on at 75; she had been married to the longtime voice of Mickey Wayne Allwine for almost two decades until his own passing in 2009.  Taylor's other credits include Huey, Dewey, and Louie in Duck Tales and Strawberry Shortcake in the character's early 80s specials; I myself liked her take as Paas's Lollichop the lamb in the Easter special Peter and the Magic Egg

Not to mention voicing Martin Prince, Sherri and Terri, and Üter on The Simpsons. And if there is an afterlife, Wayne and Russi are together again.

Longtime Raiders wide receiver Cliff Branch, the best deep threat of the 1970s, has died at 71. Branch was a 4 time Pro Bowler and a 3 time Super Bowl Champion but was sadly overlooked for the Hall of Fame.

Adjustments that should be made to pricing games to make them fairer: Secret X: Add a 3rd SP so that perfect pricing ensures a win. 1/2 Off: Add a 4th set of SPs so that perfect pricing ensures a win. Master Key: Add 2 more SPs so that perfect pricing ensures a win. Rat Race: Add 2 more SPs so that perfect pricing ensures a win.

The following pricing games should be retired because there's no way or no easy way to make them fair: Spelling Bee, Plinko, Punch a Bunch, Pass the Buck, Let em Roll.

The following retired pricing games should be revived: $uper $aver, Give or Keep, Buy or Sell, Hurdles, Bump, Penny Ante, Credit Card, On the Spot, Split Decision, Add em Up, Walk of Fame, Barker's Markers.
