Friday News and Stuff

Obituary: Singer and frontman Scott Weiland, 48, died in his sleep in Minnesota. His wife confirmed the death.

The singer rose to fame as the frontman of the Grammy Award-winning Stone Temple Pilots, whose hits include "Interstate Love Song," ''Plush," and "Vasoline."

The band broke up in 2003 and Weiland went on to front Velvet Revolver, the supergroup that featured former members of Guns N' Roses, including guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan. Among that group's hits was "Fall to Pieces."

The WSWS analyzes the mass shooting in San Bernardino.

The only reason billionaires would want to pursue immortality at all is because they KNOW they are going to hell when they die.


Unreal ANY state okays "assisted suicide" given how vulnerable the aged, the disabled, and the sick are to greedy or malicious relatives, unscrupulous doctors, and, most of all, health insurance companies trying to save money.

Truly, this legalized murder is in violation of ADA.

Access to toilet facilities for women, especially sex-segregated ones, is a human rights issue.

Nobody gives a shit about sexual perverts and crossdressers' dubious "rights" to perv on women.

Another obituary: Actor Robert Loggia, 85, who appeared on numerous movies and television programs including starring in a one-season 1960s cult favorite, T.H.E. Cat, has died. His wife said he had suffered from Alzheimer's disease.

He battled the disease for five years.

Loggia specialized in playing villainous roles.

The son of Sicilian immigrants, Loggia was born in 1930 in New York City's borough of Staten Island. He grew up in Manhattan's Little Italy section.

First inclined toward newspaper work, he studied journalism at the University of Missouri, but was drawn to acting and returned to New York to study at the Actors Studio.

He appeared on "Studio One," ''Playhouse 90" and other live dramatic series during television's Golden Age. He made his stage debut off-Broadway in 1956 in "The Man with the Golden Arm," appearing in the title role of a drug addict, played in the movie by Frank Sinatra
