MSNBC reports that Bernie Mac passed away due to complications brought on by pneumonia. He was 50.
I’ll miss Bernie. He was one of a kind, a distinct, huge personality whose gravity was irresistible. His sitcom was creative and sometimes even joyful… a rare guilt-free treat. He had a rare knack for monologues. And he got laughs without relying on crass punchlines or obscenities.
Long may the reruns play on.
