So long, and thanks for all the Fish(man)

Hal Fishman passed away at age 75 today, just one week after being diagnosed with colon cancer. While I didn’t watch him all that often I always stopped channel surfing if he came on. I knew he was the model for Kent Brockman on the Simpsons but didn’t realize that he had also done several movies. He even has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He even played himself in half a dozen films (sadly there were choice picks like Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles and Joe Dirt).
