Officers responding to a report of a shooting found Cornelius at his Mulholland Drive home at around 4 a.m., police said. He was pronounced dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound at 4:56 a.m. at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, according to the Los Angeles County coroner's office.

It saddens me as he was a real pioneer and I enjoyed the show. If only it had been a certain ex-Prime Minister of Canada I would have been organizing a party.

Our current one is the biggest ass hat we've had in a while.

Heck, any PM would be a more suitable candidate, rather than a credible, accomplished musician!


The only reasonable argument for owning a gun is to protect yourself from the police.

I watched that show, too! I used it to discover fashion items that I knew would PO everybody at school. Yeah, like that was difficult. We also got a knock-off show in Boston on one of the UHF stations. It was called "Soul Bus."

P.S. He offed himself because he'd been suffering from a terminal cancer.


Always call the place you live a house. When you're old, everyone else will call it a home.

I suspect that's a road quite a few go down.
