Stuart Rosenberg isn't doing too well.

That's a code my good friend, the gentleman from Jacksonville and I use every now and then. Not doing too well. That means he's joined the choir invisible. Croaked. Bit the dust. Kicked the bucket.

The eskimos have a hundred words for snow. We have quite a few terms for that one dance we'll do alone.

Stuart Rosenberg was a movie director. One of his most famous films was Cool Hand Luke. That one starred Paul Newman. There's a line from the flick that must be on a Best Movie Lines Ever list. It's spoken by the character Strother Martin plays.

" What we have here is a failure to communicate. "

That one should be chisled in stone above the doors of many a corporation. It should replace " Welcome " on the mats laid near the front doors of American homes. Hell, it should be added to the lyrics of the national anthem.

" What we have here is a failure to communicate. "

Great line from a great movie, directed by a guy who's not doing too well.
