Separated at Birth II

Popular demand compels me to offer another sampling public and quasi-public figures bearing a resemblance to one another.

One is Marshall Herff Applewhite, the charismatic leader of the doomed Heaven's Gate Cult. The other is Dick Vitale, the charismatic powerhouse behind ESPN's college basketball coverage. Bonus: Both have Nike endorsements.

Texas basketball coach Rick Barnes on the left is paired with Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts on the right. Both red state staples, they also share a love for the zone defense and God.

Shining-era Shelley Duval, meet your Doppelganger, WCVB (Ch. 5) meteorologist J.C. Monahan.

Dear J.C., This is not a compliment.

And by "do disappointed" I really meant "so disappointed."

What? I haven't had my coffee yet.

Is that the Deluxe Intern? First, there's no proving the Heaven's Gate movement was "doomed" as you term it. They made it, man. They may have exited their human vehicles, sure, but they're riding Hale-Bopp all the way to the great unknown...with fresh Nike's to boot.

Second, my beloved JC looks MUCH more like Chip and Dale's sweetie Clarice than any chick from Faerie Tale Theatre
