    Here's a very nice article about him.

    His family must be devastated.

    To say he was a consummate salesman would be a gross understatement...


    “Henry Ross Perot was born on June 27, 1930, in Texarkana, Texas, and raised in the height of the Depression. He graduated in 1953 from the U.S. Naval Academy, where he first learned about computers.

    After his naval service, Perot joined IBM as a computer salesman in 1957 and quickly made a reputation for himself. In 1962 he met his yearly sales quota by Jan. 19.

    RIP, Mr. Perot. Yours was a generally refreshing perspective.

    The coroner has released the results of Cameron Boyce's autopsy, and his family issued a statement: the cause of death was epilepsy.

    This was news to me:

    "Nearly 3.5 million people in the U.S. have epilepsy, a neurological disorder which causes seizures. About 1,000 people die every year of SUDEP -- Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy -- which is the leading cause of death related to the disorder."

    Very sad...

    One of the problems many have with religion is that a great kid like Cameron is taken so early, but a sleaze like Epstein is still here.

    I confess I'd never heard of Cameron Boyce before his untimely death, and it's a great tribute to him that everything being said is what a wonderful person he was.

    RIP, Cameron. We need more of you in this world and while you were taken far too soon, you at least made the world a better place.

    Same here. I think we're too old. ;)
    Indeed. He was very socially aware, and did things to help others.

    Gone too soon.

    Denise Nickerson, probably best known for her portrayal of gum-loving Violet Beauregarde in 1971's "Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory," (the good one, with Gene Wilder as WW) has died at 62 from complications following a stroke.

    RIP, Denise, and thanks for being part of a story that has made lots of kids (and wannabe kids) smile.

    This is sad news.

    While searching for articles, I saw this one--with a dateline of July 11, 2018. I wondered how it was even possible for a newspaper to print the wrong year. They didn't--a year ago TODAY she had a stroke.

    Here's an article about her death.

    RIP, Denise. Say 'hi' to Gene for me, please.

    Back in 1991 I had a friend name Eric who had Epilepsy. He live in the apartment below me. One night I heard what sounded like a fight and then I thought he was with a woman.
    The next day I saw him and immediately knew something was up. He went om to explain what Epilepsy was. He had a spare key to his place made for me and another friend.
    Seven months after I meet him, he and another friend were heading back from a concert in Grand junction Co. He was driving when he had a seizure. The car went off the road ended up going through this farmers yard and orchard.
    The other friend was thrown from the car. He recalled was looking at a tire and his rear in the middle of the orchard, turning to see Eric standing behind the wreckage calling to him and passing out.
    Because of the location and time the wreck occurred and the family who own the farm being away. It wasn't till several hours later that help arrived.
    Eric had been killed instantly.
    His death killed our little circle of friends

    Emily Hartridge, a TV and YouTube personality, has died at 35 following an e-scooter accident.

    I wasn't familiar with her, but 35 is too damned young to die.

    RIP, Emily.

    Character actor Charles Levin, 70, went missing and what appears to be his remains have been found.

    He had memorable roles on both the small screen and large, including series work on Seinfeld, Hill Street Blues and Night Court.

    RIP, Mr. Levin, and thanks for lending your talent to so many great stories.

    Boxer Pernell "Sweet Pea" Whitaker, 55, who won Olympic gold in 1984 and is regarded as one of the greatest boxers in history, was hit by a car last night while walking across an intersection in Virginia Beach, Virginia. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

    Besides the Olympic medal, Whitaker was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 2006 and won world titles in four weight classes, including the undisputed lightweight world champion.

    RIP, Mr. Whitaker, and thanks for providing lots of exciting entertainment.

    Sorry for your personal loss. I enjoyed reading his self-deprecatory bio which made me think we'd have gotten along.

    RIP, Mr. Orth. I'm glad your abilities made you able to enjoy life doing something that you loved.

    Here's a long article about Corbato.

    Just think, without him, my beloved UNIX/Linux may not exist! :eek:

    RIP, Professor Corbato, and thank you for your contributions to the computing world as we know it.
