In the "Idiot's Delight Digest" (http://www.topica.com/lists/idd/read), my Iddiot brother huitclos has been looking back at the Digests from our first year of existence - 1995.
And in today's installment, he mentions that Iddiette Brunella "wonders why the Post or Daily News neglected Jerry [Garcia] as an important death during the year."
Perhaps it was because they knew something that was being kept secret from the rest of the world?
In the TV Universe, Jerry Garcia apparently isn't dead. In fact, he even picked up former writer John Hemingway and his son and daughter in a beat-up van while they were hitching a ride down near St. Louis.
('The John Larroquette Show')
However, over in the Sketch dimension, Jerry is definitely dead. His ghost haunted a guy in a comedy sketch on 'Saturday Night Live'.
Okay..... maybe I burned out a synapse or two thinking inside the Box as much as I do!
