*It is my sad duty to report that actor Peter Graves passed away Sunday at the age of 83. Amongst his credits are years of being a narrator on A & E's Biography, and of course originating the role of Jim Phellps on Mission: Impossible.
*By Sunday night, the NCAA College Basketball Tournaments will have completed their second rounds, knocking the competition from an initial field of 64 down to 16 teams in both the Men's and Women's divisions.
