LIFE GOES ON...

On Thursday, April 7th, The Commercial Appeal ran an Associated Press story about the funeral of celebrity attorney Johnnie Cochran, lawyer for such high-profile clients as Michael Jackson, Sean "P. Diddy" Combs, and, most notoriously, O.J. Simpson. According to the article, "The range of mourners reflected Cochran's work in high profile civil rights cases and high glamor trials." Then it listed a smattering of the artists in attendance including "Stevie Wonder, and Earvin `Magic' Johnson, Jesse Jackson, former Cochran client Abner Louima, football great Jim Brown, actor Todd Bridges, and rappers Tupac Shakur and Snoop Dogg."

Of course, it's pretty unlikely that Tupac was actually in the house since the ever-popular rapper was gunned down after a Mike Tyson fight on September 7th, 1996, and died in the hospital six days later. Todd Bridges, on the other hand, may have attended the funeral but his career as an actor died in 1986 with the cancellation of Diff'rent Strokes. -- Chris Davis Plante: How It Looks
