I never saw M*A*S*H, so only knew him as Kumajii on Spirited Away. Nonetheless, it is very sad.
There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call the Twilight Zone.

Indeed. I used to watch M*A*S*H* our thoughts and prayers go out to his friends and family. He will be missed in the years to come.

Roger Bannister, the runner who broke the 4-minute mile in 1954 (time--3:59.4), age 88, complications from Parkinson's Disease.
The real definition of "fake news": a Huey Lewis tribute band.

He was fast to do that mile during his run.

RIP Roger Bannister.

Gary Cruz, former sports guy on KCAL Channel 9 in L.A., and most recently on KPHO CBS5 in Phoenix, passes on at 68 of bladder cancer:

And to commemorate-- these openings from KCAL in 1993 and 1994, and one closing (at least two of the openings have Cruz):

One of them I recall very well (even though I've never been in L.A.); John Young being the announcer:

"Now: Jerry Dunphy...Tawny Little...Carl Bell's weather...and Gary Cruz on sports. This is Prime 9 News at Ten: Southern California's most honored newscast."

I think that should warrant its own thread. RIP to a brilliant man.

I have to RIP one of the best known modern scientists. It is such a miracle that he lived for as long as he did. He was a fighter in every regard.
Reminding you about 1932... when Richard Dawson was born. I will remember $19.32, even after he Checked-Out. Feud will never be the same without you.
