    I just heard that Ruby Dee has passed at the grand old age of 91.

    RIP, Ruby, and thanks for sharing your talent.

    Pulitzer Prize winner Charles Krauthammer, who gave up a psychiatric career to become one of the leading conservative political commentators in the U.S. media, died of cancer on Thursday at the age of 68, the Washington Post and Fox News said.

    RIP, Mr. K, and thanks for being a classy, coherent voice in a world that increasingly isn’t.

    This upset me more than most celebrity deaths, although 46 is pretty old for a gorilla.

    ^^^She was smarter than many politicians... ;). Plus she got a favorable reference in Seinfeld.

    RIP Koko, and thanks for helping us learn and understand more about simians.

    Smarter, maybe, but definitely kinder, more compassionate and infinitely more honest.

    A family member here in the forums: Sweet Loretta Fat has passed at 12 years old.

    Which is early for a leopard gecko, so I'm told, but these things happen.

    Sorry, Koko, but this is sadder for me. :(

    I remember my mom, and women of her generation, fawning over him. (She was of his generation, and would have turned 84 just last week.)

    He had a ton of raw talent to support his good looks, too.
