  • YAF Remembers Comedian Jonathan Winters

    In June 2009, some of Ronald Reagan's friends shared their thoughts about our 40th President at the Reagan Ranch Roundtable held on the fifth anniversary of President Reagan's passing. In attendance were retired California Highway Patrolman Dennis LeBlanc, Reagan biographer Lou Cannon, Secret Service Agent John Barletta and comedian Jonathan Winters. He was a surprise addition to the panel and shared his Reagan anecdotes with his trademark humor. 

    Winters, 87, passed away late in the evening of April 11.

    From the New York Times:

    Jonathan Winters, the rubber-faced comedian whose unscripted flights of fancy inspired a generation of improvisational comics, and who kept television audiences in stitches with Main Street characters like Maude Frickert, a sweet-seeming grandmother with a barbed tongue and a roving eye, died on Thursday. He was 87. A family friend, Joe Petro III, said he died Thursday evening at his home in Montecito, Calif., The Associated Press reported. 

    Here are some pictures from the Roundtable event:

    Mr. Winters will be sorely missed.

    • Teams pay attention :)The plobrem with these averages is that they are averages. Particularly in college where the level of competition varies widely, the value of averages is vastly diminished. Even if you introduce variability on a game basis, its not all that informative until you weight the quality of performance and the impact of the performance.We have also looked back at previous years collegiate WS/40. THere are a lot of great performers based on WS that didnt and couldnt make it in the NBA. And vice versawhen you build teams, you dont optimize for player statistical performance. Every player has a role. We may be ok with a player not scoring or blocking shots if he can defend, or even sets a great pick in order to make someone else a more efficient scorer. ANother may rarely touch the ball but spreads the floor. I would say to make matters more difficult, there are very, very few single position players NCAA or NBA. Averages are average. Lineups are what matter

    • I typically put much more <a href="http://pefgrrkq.com">weghit</a> in offensive rebounds than defensive rebounds. Guys who get a lot of defensive rebounds are often taking them away from their own teammates. He fouls a lot, but a guy who can come off the bench score that efficiently is really valuable even if he can't do much else.

    • The increase in shnowigs, which is a precursor to sales, is a good indicator that more buyers are in the marketplace. You are right in that this graph did not specify the number of closings or sales that occurred, however it is positive news that an increased number of buyers are looking at homes. http://awqicdjlkg.com [url=http://eludmk.com]eludmk[/url] [link=http://nqtlbnywm.com]nqtlbnywm[/link]
