Karl Malden Leaves Home Without It For The Last Time

Jesus Christ, you know who needs a vacation? The Grim Reaper.

Karl Malden, one of Hollywood's strongest and most versatile supporting actors, who won an Oscar playing his Broadway-originated role as Mitch in "A Streetcar Named Desire," died today. He was 97. Malden starred in the 1970s TV series "The Streets of San Francisco" and was the longtime American Express traveler's-check spokesman, warning travelers to not leave home without it. He died of natural causes at his home in Brentwood.

I mean, yes, sure, 97. But let's try and space these things out a little better going forward, shall we?

It's like everyone is hopping on that whole death bandwagon thing.

If I were near death I'd be pretty worried just about now.

We're going to be seeing a whole lot of the grim reaper as the Baby Boomers continue to walk into that good night.

What are Karl Malden, Ed McMahon, Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson getting for Christmas this year? Patrick Swayze.

I'm sorry.

I had money on Doris Day.

I used to love his AMEX commercials, and wrote a parody of them once.

Get all the guns and ammunition you need and don't make a single payment until after the war.

The Confederate Express Card. Don't leave the Union without it.

If anything happens to Charles Durning, I am going to lose my shit.

How about Brian Dennehy? Grim's willing to make that switch.
