R.I.P. Evel Knievel

Variety announced the demise of America’s number one stuntman.

When I was a kid, I heard about other kids who were breaking bones riding their bicycles off of the roof of the house... or some such other insanity. Supposedly, they were emulating their hero, Robert “Evel” Knievel.

The great stunt man is gone... at the far too-young age of 69.

Something about burning the candle at both ends, I reckon.
