    I just got a report that Debbie Reynolds, Carrie Fisher's mom, has been rushed to the hospital...

    Yeah, I saw that too on CNN: http://www.cnn.com/2016/12/28/entertainment/debbie-reynolds-hospitalized/index.html

    I'm not surprised, she has to be nearly in shock. I can't imagine what it must be like to lose a child, at any age and under any circumstances. God knows it's hard enough to lose a parent. :(

    Ah, man. 2016, you cannot end soon enough.
    The link above from CNN that I posted confirms her passing. :(

    Death does not take a holiday, trust me more celebrities will die in 2017.

    Absolutely, no doubt.
    But...

    When I started this thread, I chose the title kind of tongue-in-cheek.

    However, 2016 seems to have embraced the challenge and has proven to be particularly rough on very well known/beloved celebs, much more so than any year I can recall.

    It will be interesting to see what 2017 holds in store in that regard. I, for one, hope it doesn't try to challenge 2016.

    Maybe the 2017 thread will be titled "Not a good year for politicians and corporate execs" I think you should start that, @rootabaga just to get the ball rolling. ;)

    Just watched Star Wars Ep IV with my Daughter, who's never seen it before - in preparation for seeing Rogue One tomorrow.
    RIP Carrie Fisher.
