Mrs. Oleson from Little House on the Prairie and NASCAR great David Pearson. A real double whammy.

Bleecker Bob
was kinda like mecca to a suburban teen living on the island

I'd never even knew bootlegs existed until I went to this shop
only went a few times, but left a lasting impression
RIP BB

Quite an establishment!  I made a few pilgrimages way back.
 
Perhaps interesting:  a suitable counterpart to this place, for the cinemaphile world, is Jerry Ohlinger's store in the Village (well it moved around somewhat) and its namesake died like two weeks ago.

George H W Bush

In retrospect a decent Republican President....a rarity

My (late) dad was a big fan.

Any rumor to his last words being "Hey wanna see a magic trick?"

I'm not prone to nostalgia, but the Bush 41 service really makes me miss the days when adults and decent men were not uncommon in DC.

Whenever a former President dies the news coverage is pure hagiography

It was always thus- even when Nixon died- and itís fine as it is about respecting the office (but it is a little overblown)
