George Burns: I'm glad to be here. At my age, I'm glad to be anywhere.

He sometimes blew cigar smoke in Gracie's face, so he might be burning where he is now.

Well, in one movie both God and the smiley - devil.

To be honest, it was hard for many people to realize just how harmful tobacco smoke was in the forties and fifties. This is not to say that there weren't plenty of people who *did* realize it, just that the many people who did smoke were apt to deny the possibility.

Gracie died the same year the Surgeon general's report on lung cancer came out: 1964.

Who expected Gracie to die young, and George to live to be 100? I'll bet George felt really bad about losing Gracie, and would gladly have done anything to have kept her alive longer.

You don't get to go back and undo the bad things you've done. smiley - sadface
