Legendary entertainer Bob Hope whose remarkable career spanned seven decades and encompassed vaudeville, radio, stage, television and film died Sunday night of pneumonia at his home in Toluca Lake, Calif., two months after his 100th birthday. In a statement, President Bush said Monday that "the nation lost a great citizen" with Hope's passing. "Bob Hope served our nation when he went to battlefields to entertain thousands of troops from different generations. We extend our prayers to his family. God bless his soul." A&E, meanwhile, will air a two-hour Biography on Hope tonight at 8 pm/ET. For a tribute to Hope, penned by one of the comedian's former writers, click here.
