What Sucks…The Reaper (An Analysis)
Something occurred to me this afternoon as I was considering the Summer of the Reaper™. Yes, much has been made of what he’s done the past few months and rightly so, let’s face it, he’s been extremely active with the celebs. Put it this way- if you’re looking for a place in Beverly Hills, for the most part, it’s now a renter’s market.
And while he’s taken down some biggies, Jacko, Farrah, John Hughes- let’s not go out of our minds patting him on the back for being such a bad-ass, some of the people he’s taken were basically on their way out to meet him.
Look at this roster, I mean the Reaper-mobile could for all intents and purposes be an “Access-a-Ride” van.
Eunice Kennedy Shriver…88
Even the Taco Bell Dog was old.
I mean, yes, sure there’s some Billy Hays, Steve McNairs and Arturo Gattis thrown in there but it’s not like we’re seeing lists like…
Shia Labeouf ...23
Allison Iraheta ...16
Selena Gomez ...
Today he took the creator 60 MinutesDon Hewitt, 86 and yesterday he took the opposite of Don Hewitt, Robert Novak, 78. What I’m saying is, hey Reaper- big man, take out a bunch of old fogies, who’s next? Mickey Rooney? Joan Rivers? I’m not impressed.
Don Hewitt, RIP.
