Hopefully Ingmar Asked Death About That Whole “Coming in 3’s” thing Edition
Todays links of interest:
- Paris Hilton loses inheritance
No, she didn’t leave her purse in a nightclub. Grandpa Hilton apparently discovered the Internets this past weekend and was appalled at what he found when he used The Google to search for little Paris. Long story short, the Hilton fortune is going to charity instead of Paris. Finally, some justice.

What took so long?
- Former 49er head coach Bill Walsh dies
The 1980s and early 1990s was a great time to be a San Francisco 49er fan. A large part of that was due to the genius of Bill Walsh. The short pass-oriented so-called "West Coast Offense" was a new wrinkle for the NFL, and one that has repercussions to this day.

Best. Interview. Ever.
- ?Ay, caramba!, ‘Simpsons’ go Hollywood with .9 mil
While the numbers come as a surprise to some, they shouldn’t. America just can’t say no to the Simpsons.
