Bernie Mac, Play On

. Saturday, August 9

Bernie Mac, actor and commedian, died this morning from pneumonia.  Known for his uplifting  The Bernie Mac Show and as part of the Ocean's 11 team, Mac was chastised by the Democratic Party when he spoke at a fundraiser for Obama in July and joked about menopause, sexual infidelity and promiscuity. (If the shoe fits...)

He suffered from sarcoidosis, an inflammatory lung disease, but the pneumonia was unrelated to this condition.  Mac was born in 1957 and raised in Chicago.

"Wherever I am, I have to play, I have to put on a good show."

That's just sad; he was a funny man, really knew how to make people laugh.

It's a true shame, indeed, and quite a shock. Great guy.
