Charles Elmer "Rip" Taylor Jr. (January 13, 1935 – October 6, 2019)


(FoxNews) – Rip Taylor, the zany
comedian who was a television and
nightclub mainstay for over six decades, has died.

Publicist Harlan Boll said Taylor died Sunday in Beverly Hills. The
cause of death was unclear.

Taylor first worked as a congressional page before serving in the
Army during the Korean War. His showbiz ascent started with
spots on "The Ed Sullivan Show," where he was known as the
"crying comedian."

FIRST TRAIN ROBBERY ON THIS DAY IN 1866

The Reno brothers, John and Simeon, staged the first train robbery in
American history, making off with $13,000 from an
Ohio and Mississippi
railroad train in Jackson County,
Indiana.

Of course, trains had been robbed before the Reno brothers’ holdup. But
these previous crimes had all been burglaries of stationary trains sitting
in depots or freight yards. The Reno brothers’ contribution to criminal
history was to stop a moving train in a sparsely populated region where
they could carry out their crime without risking interference from the law
or curious bystanders.
