Sam Simon died this week.
If you are a fan of comedy, or simply of the Simpsons you may know why he was important. If not, the links above will give you a better insight than I will into who he was, and the impact he made.
He'd been publicly sick for a while, and made huge charitable bequests in his will.
He was also know for his art collection. One thing that jumped out at me while reading this article (from a 60 minutes interview in 2007) is that he owns a cast of The Thinker.
You know The Thinker. You've seen it hundreds of times. Parodied thousands of times.
Did you know that there is no single Thinker? Rodin cast dozens of them.
They are all over the world.
We have one less than 50 miles from here.
(If you are in Greater Akron, that is.)
And because we can't have nice things, some assholes tried to destroy it in the 1970s.
