I'm convinced TMZ is run by the most evil folks in the world. In addition to it's lack on sensitivity, it boasts contradicting statements. Too add insult to injury, it blasts the starline tours customers labeling them "snappy happy tourist" when it's the SAME COMPANY TMZ IS DEALING WITH FOR THE TMZ TOURS. Way to throw them under the bus! Tmz, you and everyone who works there should rot in hell.

The great Tom Kenney.


Hollywood drug and alcohol expert.


Once said the statistics out here don't scratch
the surface -


Tom helped even me get sober.


Once driving 40 miles - eleven p.m. at night -


To stick thirty dollars in my hand.


Never forget Tom for that -


May Sage be remembered by 1,000's coming to all of the programs out here -


This is what Sly'd want.


This is how Sly'd want his kid to be remembered.


Bummer-to-the-seventeenth-degree.
