Actor Jeff Conaway dead at 60

Actor Jeff Conaway, who was in the TV series "Taxi" and the movie "Grease," died Friday morning from pneumonia, his manager said.

Conaway, 60, had been in an Encino, California, hospital since May 11, after apparently having been unconscious for eight or nine hours before he was found, Phil Brock said.

Initial reports earlier in the week that he suffered a drug overdose were inaccurate, according to a source familiar with Conaway's medical condition. However, his use of drugs caused him not to realize how ill he was, keeping him from getting treatment until it was almost too late,  the source said.

    What amazes me the most, is had this blog been about an abortion and some one commented, "she had every right to have an abortion",people like Joey would never have said "Hey,don't impose your personal values on us" But because mine mentioned Jesus,the "freedom loving" atheists are shouting the roof off,"hey don't impose you values on us" which in it's self is imposing THEIR values, or lack of, on me.Christian or not,I have the same rights as ALL other Americans.
