"You don't understand; I ain't scared of you motherfuckers."
I was just wrapping my mind around Estelle Getty, and now Bernie Mac? That's what we call hardcore. He was a notable presence, even if he didn't always make the best choices in movie roles. I've got respect for anyone who can get sampled on a Prince record (It's called "Pope," and it's pretty good), and if I have to be 100% honest, I'll cop to being dismayed by his death because I always wanted to cast him and Grace Jones as a couple in a movie. But here's to you, Mr. Mac. It's a testament to your talents that I was willing to let your homophobia and pro-child beating ways slide, and I hope there was "some milk and cookies" waiting in the next life.
