    Author Tom Clancy, whose novel, "The Hunt for Red October" propelled him to fame, fortune and status as a favorite storyteller of the American military, has died, according to sources with his publisher and family. He was 66.

    Be Easy, Tom.

    Sad news. My day has been full of it for some reason. Found out about two people that lost dogs, and a young man that was found in the Mississippi River.

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

    I can respect someone who I do not agree with, but I have NO respect for someone who puts others down in a public forum. That is the hallmark of someone who has no integrity, and cannot be trusted.

    Come on, Harrison Ford isn't so bad. He's an action hero kind of actor, unlike the other two-they may have done roles in action movies, but the movies weren't very good.


    Anyways, Connery was the star of The Hunt For Red October, if that's any consolation.
