I hope I'm not disturbing a game but I wanted to say something about Hatch, He was absolutely the most approachable guest at Dragon Con for 20 some years, A very nice guy, he liked to talk about independent film and was genuinely interested in anything you might be doing no mater how small the project. He was a childhood hero and later that one guest who I would go out of my way to shake hands with every year I cant imagine he remembered everyone but he always seemed to remember me when I would visit. This is a big loss.  He was cheated out of the Battlestar Galactica revival, his script was much better than the remake and carried on the story but at least they had the sense to bring him in as a new character (one I liked) What a bummer.

I didn't know about Alan Colmes.  I used to listen to him on the local AM talk station; he was the balance to Rush Limbaugh, airing just after him every afternoon.

Don Rickles, aggressively caustic comedian known as 'Mr. Warmth,' dies at 90 - LA Times

And just like that, Morvis13 vaults into 1st in the Body Count with 1 point, while simultaneously dropping to last place in The Good Die Young with -5 points. [Google Docs Link]

By the way, I realize that I have not added Gerbig's or estockly's entries.  I will do that soon, but I don't have my computer in front of me.  Rest assured that your entries count and you will score when appropriate.
