retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Larry Hagman, who personified one face of American business with his gleeful portrayal of Texas oilman J.R. Ewing on the TV series "Dallas" from 1978 to 1991, and then recreated the role in a successful reboot of the series on cable TV earlier this year, died on Friday at age 81, from complications related to cancer.
KC's View:
Never watched any soap operas, but loved "Dallas," mostly because Hagman was so much fun to watch. And when the new version came on, I watched the first episode out of curiosity ... and then was hooked, mostly because of Hagman's sheer joy of performance.
