I wonder if he has not been sick a while, I know they said heart failure but the statement from the family was 'he died peacefully' which sounds allot more like they knew it was coming, rather than a sudden heart attack, possible he had Aids, he had pneumonia a while back which is a common problem that crops up with Aids.

95's not a bad innings, all told, but still sad.

95 is really rather good.

I remember Liz Smith from 'I didn't know you cared' and the 'Royle family'. An excellent actress with good timing.

She did a lot of drugs when she had to face the worldwide fame she encountered after Star Wars. That always has a physical cost.

I bought her latest book a few weeks back, have yet to read it.
Her 'Postcards from the Edge' is the one I read first, in the nineties, a semi-autobiographical story that had quite an impact on me, more than I thought it would.

Clever lady. Caused no end of problems for computational astronomers though, how do you model something that doesn't reveal itself?

I dealt with it by simply declining to model rotating Galaxies.

I was looking through Utube when I come across this horror.

First Leonard Nimoy gone in 2016 and now this.

Worst Christmas present ever.

All in all 2016 has been a lousy year.
