    His blend of American folk, Latin and rockabilly music captivated listeners worldwide. His secret: arrangements that people could dance to. He died of Covid-19.

    I remember he tried really hard to get picked for a role in "The Dirty Dozen." Not quite "dirty" enough.

      It depends on what the definition of "Professional" is. A PRO Fesser of B.S?

          ??? he was Jiminez.

            Virus mystery: The case of the missing Fresca

            The popular diet soda vanished along with toilet paper. Unlike TP, it hasn’t come back. Why?

                Right...

                He also appeared in the hit 1967 movie “The Dirty Dozen,” in a role that was meant to be large but that got cut down after Mr. Lopez left the shoot before it ended, frustrated by production delays.

                    I'm pretty sure they felt that way BEFORE the pandemic.

                        about which areas can return to in-person schools safely, which ones cannot, & which can be phased in. Disparities in article worth a look, adds to complexity of reopening decisions.

                          My guess is this poll was taken in 1603.

                              • Amazing run all alone for last mile+ and to run sub 2:00 last 800m and maybe a sub 4:00 last 1600m (not sure of first two 400m times). I recorded the race and saw it an hour later but some how I got got off and it ended with the 3000m steeplechase leaders battling around the last turn. Who won? It was a great meet to watch live again.
