A VOICE SILENCED

Don Pardo is dead at 96..

You may not know him by his face, but you would definitely know him by his voice. He was the longtime voice of Saturday Night Live, only missing one season throughout the entirety of the programs lifespan.

He is done a number of other voice over jobs, you may also recognize him from the program Jeopardy..

Television may not be the same without him, regardless of how bad or good Saturday Night Live was, his voice being the mainstay and permanent fixture of the program was comforting..

May he rest in peace..

All around the world, the events are taking place. Some places on Earth are already 2013. The Pope will have a homily about how peace could be achieved. Fireworks will fly high into the night sky.. People will embrace …
