BOB CLARK, 66

Strannix @ Welcome to the Revolution earns the point. Clark was director of A Christmas Story, Porky's and Rhinestone.

Mmm. Porky's.

Clark and his 22-year-old son died Wednesday after their sedan was hit by a GMC Yukon. According to TMZ:
Hector Velazquez Nava, 24, was charged with two counts of gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated; one for each of the victims, and he's being held in a Los Angeles County jail in lieu of $200,000 bail. If convicted, Nava faces up to twelve years in prison.
Strannix tips a half-point to Skippy the Bush Kangaroo for the find.

You missed this, lefty: "Velazquez-Nava, 24, had a blood alcohol level three times the legal limit when the crash occurred early Wednesday on Pacific Coast Highway, police said. He is a native of Mexico who federal authorities said was in the U.S. illegally."

Anon 7:43, sorry, but most drunken drivers are good ol' U.S. citizens. You're using someone else's tragedy to try to make a point on an entirely different issue.

thx 4 the link, ron. i think a christmas story is the best christmas film of all time, and i think porky's, for being nothing but gross jokes, is still full of laughs.

bob clark may have been playing strictly to the cheap seats in his career, but he did it impeccably.
