Larry Fine’s death (45 years ago (72)) left but a single original Stooge, Moe Howard, who would follow Larry in death four months later.

I guess that means look for another Stooges update this year! :tomatododge:

Ghandi was assassinated 72 years ago today

For the sake of DL's search engine: Gandhi died 72 years ago today.
