I know he has absolutely nothing to do with speculative fiction, but he passed away recently due to complications with pneumonia and I felt like mentioning it. He was a hilarious man and he will be sorely missed. It came as a shocker to me because I would have never thought it could happen...but it did and now one of the great comedians of our day is no longer with us.
May he rest in peace.
