A loss. I am not happy, except that I am at least a bit happy that John was able to die as he was, and not who he was forced into pretending to be for so many years.

I've lost a bit of laughter from my life. My loss, heaven's gain. God speed, John Mahoney.

I met him once about 17 years ago when he was filming at the museum where I was a docent. He was very nice to us. RIP.

Just caught up on this thread. So sorry for your loss, but what a lovely eulogy. You were obviously, and rightly, very proud of him. :bighug:

Champion Of The Internet And Grateful Dead Lyricist John Perry Barlow Dies At 70

The EFF’s Executive Director Cindy Cohn wrote: "Barlow’s lasting legacy is that he devoted his life to making the Internet into 'a world that all may enter without privilege or prejudice accorded by race, economic power, military force, or station of birth … a world where anyone, anywhere may express his or her beliefs, no matter how singular, without fear of being coerced into silence or conformity.”'

CNN
'House of Cards' and 'The Wire' actor Reg E. Cathey dead at 59

(CNN) Actor Reg E. Cathey, better known for his roles in the hit Netflix drama "House of Cards" and the HBO series "The Wire," has died.

His death was announced Friday night by David Simon, the creator of "The Wire," who paid tribute to the late 59-year-old actor on Twitter. "Not only a fine, masterful actor -- but simply one of the most delightful human beings with whom I ever shared some long days on set," Simon wrote. "On wit alone, he could double any man over and leave him thinking. Reg, your memory is a great blessing." ...

The Huntsville, Alabama, native was born into a military family in August of 1958. He took an interest in theater at the age of 9 after attending a United Service Organization show in West Germany, where he was raised. He attended the University of Michigan and the Yale School of Drama. Over more than three decades, Cathey was praised for his commanding baritone voice and the unexpected sense of humor he brought to his roles.

I've been away, so I'm just now catching up. I am so sorry for your loss, Stern. I loved your eulogy to your Dad -- sounds like he led a pretty awesome life (and I know he had a wonderful son :bighug: )

I just returned from the Cayamo cruise (all music, all day and all night). There was a performer I had never heard of -- Steve Poltz (turns out he co-wrote with Jewel, including her hit "You Were Meant for Me"). Anyway, he wrote a lot of funny songs and was a bit of a nut, but one of his songs was "Hey God I'll Trade You Donald Trump for Leonard Cohen." It's a little kooky, but in it he sings about a lot of the folks we've lost recently. This kind of music isn't everyone's cup of tea, and it was meant to be light-hearted, but by the time he was done with this song I was sobbing.

Here's a link to the youtube video if anyone's interested (in the version he did on the ship he added a verse about Tom Petty):

Denmark's Prince Henrik, who wanted to be king, dies at 83

Queen Margrethe married Prince Henrik in 1967

Prince Henrik of Denmark, the husband of Queen Margrethe who was famous for his public unhappiness at never being named king, has died at the age of 83.

The controversial French-born prince had been diagnosed with dementia last year and was admitted to hospital in January with a lung infection.

His flamboyant style was both loved and criticised by Danes.

Frustrated with his royal title, he announced in 2017 that he did not want to be buried next to his wife.

The 77-year-old queen accepted her husband's decision, the Royal House said at the time, breaking a 459-year-old tradition of burying royal spouses together.

The prince died "peacefully in his sleep" at the Fredensborg Castle, north of Copenhagen, with Queen Margrethe and their two sons - Crown Prince Frederick and Prince Joachim - at his side.
