RIP - Pierre Salinger, press secretary for JFK in 60's

I always thought of him as Mr. Eyebrows.


Pierre Salinger, who served as President John F. Kennedy's press secretary and later had a long career with ABC News, has died.
The announcement came from ABC.
Salinger was 79.
The network said he died from a heart attack at a hospital in France.

He was one of the very few Press Secretaries whose press conferences were interesting, and sometimes fun, compared with the droning voices from most of them.

Without Googling, I don't remember specifically. He did live in France for the latter years, if I recall correctly, and appeared to become somewhat addled. IMO, it's always sad to see that happen with anybody.

James, he was actively running around...

...professing that TWA Flight 800's loss in July 1996 had happened due to the plane being struck by a missile accidently fired by a Navy ship - a claim that was intensively investigated at the time and found to be baseless.

They repeated that last night on his eulogy.

Seems like the news would have spent more time on his earlier years instead of some old guy's wackier last few. Especially since he was like one of their own. I'll admit though, he had me wondering about it at the time, especially since we also shot down a passenger jet in the Middle East over the Gulf.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
