    Hearing about Jamison’s passing made me flash back to the first time I met him up in Minnesota at a charity golf event put on by my late friend Fergie Fredricksen, who was the former lead singer of Toto as well as other groups. Fredricksen introduced me to Jamison in the lobby of the hotel before we headed over to the concert that evening where Fredricksen, Jamison and numerous other well-known musicians were going to perform. The place was packed that night and Jamison and Fredricksen, along with the other performers, belted out some of the big hits for which they were best known.

    In earlier years, “Tank” was portrayed as a hilarious buffoon ex-professional athlete totally unqualified to do his journalistic job. There were a lot of gags focused on “Tank’s” fumble-mouth mistakes and on his tendency to jump on anything loose on the floor as if it were a fumbled football.

    It appears that death has been a revolving door in the comic book world, especially in the superhero-titled comics. If this were DC or Marvel comics, Archie might end up being resurrected just in time for a new movie featuring the character. However, there is no need for that here as Archie is only dying in the “Life with Archie” series. All the other versions of the Archie titles and incarnations will continue to live on.

    During a high school practice round his sophomore year, where he was the number one player on his team, one of his fellow teammates goofing around like players occasionally do tossed a stick at him as he was chipping near the green. Justin abruptly turned around and the stick hit him directly in his left eye.
