Weren't those the opening lines to the 1960s television medical drama BEN CASEY?

Anyway, a good theme for those of us into the pop/rock scene of the '60s and 70s as the grim reaper seems to be "celebrity-obsessed" come lately:

                    "DROPPING LIKE FLIES"---recently deceased:
Levon Helms: drummer/lead vocalist for The Band (the ultimate namesake for a band, no?)
Donald "Duck" Dunn (Booker T. & the M.G.s/Mar-Keys)
Donna Summer
...those are the "death" and "infinity" ones...

                                the "birth" and "life":

Bob Dylan will be turning 71 this next Thursday (can you believe that?)
He was born Robert Allen Zimmerman on May 24 1941 in Duluth (that's across the river from Superior Wisconsin)
