There is a very initial report that beloved comedian Bernie Mac died earlier this morning. UPDATE: The Chicago Sun Times has suddenly and mysteriously knocked down its item that featured its entertainment columnist, Stella Foster, as saying she received a call from a close family friend of the Mac family saying he’d died this morning. Interesting …….

If true, and let’s hope it’s not, this is an extremely sad day. Bernie Mac is all kinds of awesome. It’s hard to pin down my favourite Bernie Mac bits, but here’s one. Post your own in comments.
