business news in context, analysis with attitude

Hugh O'Brian, perhaps best known for playing the title role in the TV series "The Life & Legend of Wyatt Earp" from 1955-1961, passed away yesterday at age 91. In addition to acting in many movies and in another TV series, "Search," O'Brian also had the distinction of playing the last character killed by John Wayne in a movie - in The Shootist.
KC's View:
I actually met Hugh O'Brian once, when he appeared on a television program for which I was working as a production assistant. What many people did not know was that he'd started an organization called the Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership Foundation in 1958, and over the years had run programs for more than 400,000 10th-graders around the country. That effort was inspired, he said, by time he'd spent with Dr. Albert Schweitzer in Africa.
