This one hits real close to home for the Greenewalds. The Travalena Fred kids also went to the same school John and his sisters went, at First Lutheran School in Northridge. Have to ask them which was close to those kids age wise. It was a very small school so all the kids knew each other. We would see Fred Travalena picking the kids up all the time for years.

LOS ANGELES – Impressionist Fred Travalena, a headliner in Vegas showrooms and a regular on late-night talk shows with his takes on presidents, crooners and screen stars, has died in Los Angeles. He was 66.

Publicist Roger Neal says Travalena died Sunday at his home in the Encino area after a recurrence of the non-Hodgkin's lymphoma that first surfaced in 2002.

Travalena was known for the sheer volume of celebrities he imitated, leading to the nicknames "The Man of a Thousand Voices" and "Mr. Everybody."

His act included presidents from Kennedy to Obama, musicians from Frank Sinatra to Bruce Springsteen and actors from Marlon Brando to Tom Cruise.

The Bronx native started his career in Las Vegas in 1971.

My dad's been good friends with him for a loooong time.

Been to Fred's house to have dinner with him once. Real charming guy.
War is an extension of economics and diplomacy through other means.

Economics and diplomacy are methods of securing resources used by humans.

Securing resources is the one necessary behavior for all living things.

War = Life
