Farewell, Jack LaLanne

I remember my parents watching the Jack LaLanne show when I was a little kid - and I can still see those blue work-out jumpsuits he used to wear (whether my parents actually exercised while watching the show....well, that's debatable).

I remember Mr. LaLanne today because he was a true pioneer - one that spent decades bringing the messages of nutrition and fitness to the masses.  He started way before it was routinely discussed or even thought about by the general public (or anyone not considered a competitive athlete).

Here's an article from CNN about his life.
