Bernie Mac remembered by Ice Cube, George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Chris Rock, and others: http://www.vh1.com/movies/news/articles/1592487/20080810/story.jhtml

Bernie Mac was one of the funniest comedians of our time, that is if you could relate to or appreciate his type of humor because it was definitely not for everyone. I never had the opportunity to see any of his standups in person, but I’ve seen every one of them on DVD. I’m certainly going to miss this man! George Clooney, his co-star inthe Ocean’s Eleven movies, was correct in saying, “The world just got a little less funny.”

R.I.P. Mac-Man. You will most definitely be missed.
