The original Queen Latifah (see photo) died at last at the spry age of  73.

Etta James, who’s “At Last” has been the 1st dance for about 99.9999% of the world’s weddings since November 15, 1960,… wait a second here…

"One of these things is not like the oth-"... oh, wait, they are, like, JUST like each other.

I just IMDb’d her, and here is an incomplete list of movies & TV shows that “At Last” appeared in:  Rain Man, How to Make an American Quilt, Father of the Bride Part II (wonder where they worked it in there…), Kissing a Fool, Living Out Loud, Pleasantville, The Other Sister, American Pie (ug), It Had to be You, Reindeer Games (for the love of God), See Spot Run, Andy Richter Controls the Universe, The Tuxedo, The Bernie Mac Show, Chocolate com Pimenta, Little Manhattan, Phat Girlz, Inland Empire, The Simpsons, Criminal Minds, State of Mind, The Wire…

OK, I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say that every single human on the face of the earth has hear Etta James sing “At Last.”  I mean, if you’re a cop in Detroit? Heard it.  If you’re a lawyer in Dubai? heard it.  If you’re a hooker in Uzbekistan? Heard it.  Living in the slums of Mumbai? Heard it.  If you are dying in a famine in Africa? ya know what?  Heard it.

I must add here, that she sang many other songs.  All of them very well…

And this hit goes to… let me check… to Jami!  Yes, my lovely wife has successfully prognosticated the passing of a second person this year!

She now joins the 4-way tie for second place.  I’m willing to bet that one of these four can get more than 100 points this year!

Happy pooling,
