The singer's passing gets first alert from Desdinova, super villain of the Ozarks and winner of the point (Desdi was seven minutes ahead of MIT, according to the e-mails).

Who's Frankie Laine? The Associated Press explains:
Somewhat younger listeners may remember him best for singing the theme to the television show “Rawhide,” which ran from 1959 to 1966, and the theme for the 1974 movie “Blazing Saddles.”
That latter theme, by the way, was nominated for an Academy Award.

Thanks for the mention, Ron. I have a CD of Lane perform a few years back with a symphony orchestra. It is mainly his Western themes (Sadly no Blazing Sadles) and he could still nail the high notes.
