Bruno Kirby, rest in peace

Bruno Kirby, perhaps best known for his role in City Slickers, passed away on August 14th. I noticed his passing and stored it away in the back of my mind. I'm not a big movie buff, but the roles Kirby played that I could remember were always roles I had enjoyed. I didn't think much about it again until I ended up at the Intellectual Conservative. There I read a post that was both a criticism of Billy Crystal and something of a euology to Kirby. After reading that post, I am certain that Kirby is someone that I would have liked to have met and for whom I'd have gladly purchased a drink. Rest in peace, Bruno.
