RIP John from Cincinnati
"John from Cincinnati," just nine weeks old, died Tuesday. The mysterious stranger, who had been seen by only a few people on HBO, was declared dead two days after its first season finale. TV Week reported Tuesday that less than 1 million viewers saw John him on Aug. 5, his second-last appearance on the cable channel.
Although no one was quite sure where John was from, it was clear he wasn't from Cincinnati. A drug addict named Butchie Yost speculated in June that was from Cincinnati, and John -- who repeated what he heard others say -- agreed.
Mourners may express condolences to TV Week blogger Michele Grippi, one of the few who will miss the show.
I guess "John from Cincinnati," whatever he was, didn't have supernatural powers or the ability to save himself.
