Gary Hart dies
Wrestling manager and booker Gary Hart has died, according to the Wrestling Observer's website.

My interest in wrestling began in about 1991, a few years after Hart was on the national scene. But he made major appearances in two of this year's documentaries on World Class Championship Wrestling, the vehicle that featured the legendary and tragic Von Erich family.

In my opinion, Hart gave the best and honest interviews on the documentaries, the independent (and I think superior) Heroes of World Class and WWE's Triumph and Tragedy.

Hart also worked in the NWA in the late 1980s, managing heels such as Terry Funk.

Hart was 66.

Rest in peace, Mr. Hart.

When I first read the headline, I thought it was about Gary Hart the politician, who got caught doing the nasty-nasty with a model on a yacht during the '88 presidential campaign.

Wasn't that yacht called the "Monkey Business"? Simply classic.

It's safe to say that Gary Hart was a pioneer in American politics. Had he come around even 10 years later, it may not have had any effect on his career.
