The list of celebrities who passed this year included many familiar names, including my father's favorite golfer Arnold Palmer and the first American to circumnavigate the earth in outer space, John Glenn. In the music realm David Bowie passed away early this year followed by Prince. Muhammed Ali will always be remembered being "the Greatest" during boxing's glory days. George Kennedy will always be remembered as the guy who stuffed eggs into Paul Newman's mouth in Cool Hand Luke. And Fidel Castro will always be remembered for... well, for being Fidel Castro. In November we lost The Man from U.N.C.L.E. and this week said good-bye to both Princess Leia and her mother.
As the year ends, the Dow Jones Industrial Average is flirting with new highs and many rich got richer. And although no one can predict what the year to come will bring, this year's crystal balls are more cloudy than ever with the new regime coming to Washington.
In the meantime, here are a few more interviews from the year winding down.
