Actor Larry Hagman, 81

Larry Hagman dead at 81

Quote
Larry Hagman, who created one of American television's most supreme villains in the conniving, amoral oilman J.R. Ewing of "Dallas," died on Friday, the Dallas Morning News reported. He was 81.
Hagman died at a Dallas hospital of complications from his battle with throat cancer, the newspaper said, quoting a statement from his family. He had suffered from liver cancer and cirrhosis of the liver in the 1990s after decades of drinking.
Hagman's mother was stage and movie star Mary Martin and he became a star himself in 1965 on "I Dream of Jeannie," a popular television sitcom in which he played Major Anthony Nelson, an astronaut who discovers a beautiful genie in a bottle...

I never watched "Dallas", but I sure watched "I Dream of Jeannie". What young boy didn't dream of a beautiful girl who fulfilled your every wish and called you "Master"?

"A strict observance of the written laws is doubtless one of the high duties of a good citizen, but it is not the highest. The laws of necessity, of self-preservation, of saving our country when in danger, are of higher obligation. To lose our country by a scrupulous adherence to written law, would be to lose the law itself, with life, liberty, property and all those who are enjoying them with us; thus absurdly sacrificing the end to the means."

It's been 25 years and mrs. trapeze (who is beautiful) still won't get with the program.

Larry Hagman had everything that most people identify with a successful life: fame, fortune. I have no idea if his personal life was as rich. I did watch Dallas. It was over the top ridiculous and I enjoyed it for its campiness.

May he rest in peace.
In a doomsday scenario, hippies will be among the first casualties. So not everything about doomsday will be bad.

In 1981, with interest rates above 20%, I needed to change careers from a salesman for a home builder.

A local fuel distributorwhowas friends of those guys (and whom I knew pretty well) needed a manager for an expanding business.

In the interview, he asked me what I knew about the oil industry.
I told him I watched Dallas.

Little did I know how prescient I was. 3 months later I got dragged into federal court with him because of his shenanigans

Hmmm ... I never watched a single episode of that show ( "Dallas" ) but I did see his mom in "Peter Pan" .

"He was a longtime member of the Peace and Freedom Party, a minor leftist organization in California.

Hagman told the Times that after death he wanted his remains to be "spread over a field and have marijuana and wheat planted and harvest it in a couple of years and then have a big marijuana cake, enough for 200 to 300 people. People would eat a little of Larry."

You guys miss this part?
