I am getting really sick of 2016.
Seriously, this year feels like a slow-motion Rapturing of beloved talent. More so than previous years, somehow.
And now Elie Wiesel.
Not that I knew anything about him other than Babylon 5…(libertarian talk radio??)
That’s the 4th actor from that show who “went beyond the rift”
Jeff Conaway (Bobby Wheeler!)
and now Jerry Doyle.
Michael O’Hare (Commander Sinclair)
TIm Choate (Zathras. Not to be confused with Zathras.)
As well as a clutch of smaller part /guest actors but those are the ones most people would remember.
Michael O’Hare’s dead!?!

So dear sweet universe, if you are paying attention in the vastness of interstellar space, take a moment from plotting the trajectory of comets and designing new DNA in farflung cosmos, and spare a thought for those who you have plucked so untimely from our ranks…and knock it off for a while. Because this isn’t fair.
-J. Michael Straczynski
One for kids of the 80s.
And Postman Pat!
Minor celebrity, but very sad for me. I used to listen to him on vinyl. Although I had thought he had been long gone.
