This was an item that I saw first the laradio.com page on Monday; but that's radio for you. I think that the news of George's passing was first broken there, too.

Have you noticed that there have been lots of deaths in the last couple of months of people from the local entertainment and news, mostly from our "youth," like Engineer Bill Stulla, Chucko the Clown, Lloyd Thaxton, Gil Stratton, and even George Putnam who was around even earlier?

George was one of the last great news guys in the industry. Michael tons going on in the city with our moron council. How can anyone vote for a Mayor who has this city in its worst deficit in the history of LA? Now he wants to cut libraries and other important services. Why not cut ALL THE DAMN STAFF OF COUNCIL PEOPLE? CUT OUT ALL THE CARS THEY DRIVE, CUT OUT BLACKBERRIES, OT, VALIDATING PARKING FOR GUESTS, SPECIAL EVENT WAIVERS ETC. IDIOTS HAVE NO CLUE WHAT THEY'RE DOING.
