Well, here it is July 1, 2009 and we have yet another celebrity death. Now it is Karl Malden. I sure hope that the death counts start to slow down soon. We are losing too many people lately. Karl Malden was 97 years old and is most well known for "The Streets of San Franscisco". This television series was on in the 1970's and featured a very young Michael Douglas. He was also known for his television commercials for the American Express Card; "The American Express Card, don't leave home without it!". Rest in peace Karl Malden, you will be missed. Have a nice day and happy myLotting!!!

That's a shame. Well, he almost made it to 100 years old. I had heard he passed away. It is sad all these deaths lately.

I remember Karl Malden well, he will be missed. I too hope this will not be the beginning of another month of celebrity deaths; June 2009 was so sad. Personally, I am ready for some pleasant news for a change. May they all rest in peace.

I remember him well! What a terrific actor, his characters were wonderful. He had a good life but had been ill for several years. I just read that he and his wife had one of the longest marriages in Hollywood. Look him up on Wikopedia, there's some interesting reading there!

Being elderly I'm very familiar with him. Used to watch Streets of Frisco all the time, it was really hip back then! LOL! Another went unnoticed here, a couple days ago and she was Gale Storm she passed a couple of days ago, she had a couple of great TV series back in the 50's "My Little Margie" was one of them and I used to watch that every day also! Hope they all went in peace! tdemex

I did a similar post this morning about Karl Malden. It's scary that so many are dying so close together! It's funny, though. The thing I remember most about Karl Malden was a reference to him made in an Inspector Gadget cartoon. Inspector Gadget called him "that kindly old potato-nosed man" and had me giggling my head off! He did have a rather, umm, unusual nose! He lived a very long life and was happily married for 70 years. He was definitely one of the good guys. He will be greatly missed.

Thousands die every day that it wouldn't surprise me but I'd still be sad to see my man Bill Murray or Steve Martin (Robert Deniro) go..

I was hoping that with July upon us that it would stop with the deaths but I guess not. As the deaths have happened I have been calling my parents and now my father is referring me as the "secretary to the greem reaper". My parents new about Farrah then I called to tell them about Michael Jackson, than Bill Mays, Gale Storm, Fred Travelena. Now we were both calling each other at the same time to tell each other about Karl Marden today. Will it ever stop!
