    (CNN) -- Comic actor Bernie Mac died early Saturday of complications from pneumonia, according to a family member and his publicist. He was 50.
    Bernie Mac, 50, had been hospitalized in his hometown, Chicago, with pneumonia.





    He had been hospitalized in Chicago, Illinois, for more than a week with the lung infection.
    Danica Smith, the comedian's publicist, had said Thursday that Mac's condition was "stable," The Associated Press reported.
    "When I got the call this morning, it was just devastating news," said Chicago Sun-Times columnist Stella Foster. "Let's face it: Bernie Mac was one of a kind. He was the best of the best in terms of giving you a good laugh."
    Smith previously said the pneumonia wasn't related to sarcoidosis, a lung disease Mac had, which had been in remission since 2005, according to AP.
    Mac caused a stir in July with some jokes he made during a fundraiser for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, AP reported.
    Mac -- born Bernard Jeffrey McCollough -- starred in the Fox television series "The Bernie Mac Show." His film roles included the "Ocean's Eleven" series, "Friday," "Get on the Bus," "Transformers" and "Bad Santa."
    Nature always sides with the hidden flaw.

    We will have to repent in this generation not merely for the hateful words and actions of the bad people but for the appalling silence of the good people.

              There is very little "major" news that survives an hour without being posted or mentioned here...
