Celebrity bicycle carnage

Actor Gene Hackman is recovering after being hit by a pickup truck while bicycling in the Florida Keys. He was airlifted to the hospital, tested, and released... with a few bumps and bruises to show for the adventure. He was not wearing a brain bucket. Story HERE.

I'm impressed! The guy is 81 years old... out there on his velocipede. It gives me hope.

I've been enjoying his work since "Bonnie and Clyde," which was probably the first R-rated movie I ever saw. (Dad took me to it when I still needed "a parent or guardian.") But I digress.

Here's wishing Mr. Hackman a speedy recovery!
