I'm a big fan of his and his brother. He will be missed.

Such sad news. May he find the peace that he seemingly couldn't find in this life. :(

I heard this on NPR on my way to work. Very sad. He was 68 and that somehow makes it sadder to me.

Phyllis Diller has also died. I remember her as a kid and being envious of that hair. :sigh:

Additional news on Tony Scott. Apparently he had inoperable brain cancer. At least that sheds a little light on why he did what he did but still very sad indeed.

Tink, I saw that about Phyllis Diller last night. What I life she had and went peacefully in her sleep with a smile on her face (according to her son who found her). I remember seeing old clips of Laugh-In with her. She was hillarious!! Did anyone know she was the voice of the Aunt Queen in A Bug's Life?
