    Seems convenient to me, like the story will end with the small fish. And the victims won't be heard. :(

    I have never been into conspiracy theories but I have to think something is very, very off and incredibly weird with this whole thing.

    When I first saw that he was on suicide watch after an earlier attempt, I had to wonder how he was able to be successful. Somebody should be losing their job over this. Does not matter who he was or what he did or did not do, everybody deserves the same consideration if they are in some kind of custodial situation and have been placed on suicide watch. Otherwise, why bother having "suicide watch"?

    When I first read this story I thought there was something off. It was from a different paper and apparently one person was hanging out the plane holding onto her while two others held that persons legs. My first thought was how do you orchestrate that in the split second she opened the door. Now that article says they held onto her for two minutes. Sorry but not a chance. The mention of the bottle of sleeping pills just makes it more suspicious. I hope the truth comes out :( RIP

    Oh my goodness...my alerts just went crazy from all my local news sources: Peter Fonda has died. :eek:

    Details are sketchy, but sister Jane Fonda has confirmed his death. He was 79. Update: cause of death was respiratory failure from lung cancer.

    I had a serious schoolgirl crush on him after seeing Easy Rider...oh, those tight, black leather pants...

    Richard Williams, the animator probably best known for his work on "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" and two "Pink Panther" films, has died at 86.

    He was universally well-liked and shared his creative abilities and ideas with anyone willing to learn.

    RIP, sir, and thanks for sharing your innovations and talents.

    Some of my favorite films.

    This article about Richard Williams' death, cites his daughter as saying he died from cancer, and it had been a swift illness.

    RIP, Mr Williams, and thanks for your brilliant work.

    The oldest living USC and LA Rams football player, Jim Hardy, died on August 16 at 96.

    He was the MVP of the 1945 Rose Bowl, and was named to the Pro Bowl in 1950.

    He apparently died of natural causes.

    RIP...

    No, I think it's perfectly fine.

    I remember that day really well, as my daughter and I had just gotten off a plane at LAX and that now-famous video of the crash was all over the news. When you see that video, you can't help but be amazed at the crews' skill, and that there weren't more fatalities.

    RIP, Mr Haynes.

    It took me a day to connect it, but I actually know one of the flight crew from UA232, she is engaged to a friend of mine. Small world, and all that.

    *39...but still... :(

    ETA: I did not recognize her name, but IMDb reminded me that Jessi filled in on Mythbusters while Kari Byron was on maternity leave. Now it's hitting me...

    Oh, damn... Valerie Harper, famous for her role as Rhoda on The Mary Tyler Moore Show, has died. She was 80.

    The cause of death hasn't been released yet. I know she battled cancer, including brain cancer, but don't know if that played a part in her death.

    Here's a much longer article.

    RIP Valerie, and thanks for the great fun and happiness you brought so many of us.
