RIP Cory Monteith, from Glee. 31 years old. I assume his addiction got the best of him.

RIP Elmer T. Lee, former master distiller at the Buffalo Trace distillery, and father of the Single Barrel Bourbon. A true gentleman, and a legend of the whiskey industry.

Mr. Lee "retired" in 1985, but kept showing up for work every Tuesday until earlier this year.

There are some outstanding quotes in that movie... I'm especially fond of the part where he's trolling DeNiro...

RIP Tom Knapp, one of the best exhibition shooters of all time. Mr. Knapp died a few months ago, but I just learned of his passing. The man was a true showman and one of the most skilled shooters ever:

I don't want to sound insensitive, but I have no sympathy for famous millionaires who kill themselves with drugs like this guy or that Heath Ledger dude.
