Pain meds mixed with 6 other drugs. Don’t think there was any surprise here.

I was a bit surprised, and very disappointed. I loved his music, but my impression was that he wanted to semi-retire and spend time with his grandkids. Now they will never have that time with him because of his stupidity, for lack of a better word.
Same goes for Philip Seymore Hoffman.

I wasn't able to meet the man, but his wines speak volumes. RIP Bruno Giacosa.
I went to an incredible Giacosa dinner about 5 years ago that really showed me how great the wines are. Just picked up some 01 Falletto di Serralunga last week. RIP

Bummer. Got to see her perform at a blues festival in Dallas probably over 25 years ago.
She died in 2012. I'm guessing he meant to post in the what are you listening too thread.

Sad. One of the few remaining of the Piemonte old guard. I have an 04 Giacosa Falletto di Serralunga standing right now.

John Coleman great Chicago weatherman who wised up and moved to San Diego. FWIW also a vehement climate change denier.

Not to put him down or anything, but it seems like being a weatherman in San Diego would be a pretty easy job.

ursula k. le guin.

Her imagination knew no bounds. From the beautiful worlds she envisioned, the intricate varieties of magic casting to the complex characters you both rooted and hated for, she will sorely be missed by this fan.

Warren Miller

Had no idea he was 93. The king of ski films, every kid that put on two planks day dreamed of doing the things on those movies.
Jon M. Huntsman

He and his wife, Karen, gave away $1.55 billion during their lives together.

His contributions to cancer research are immeasurable.

RIP, Mr. Huntsman.

P.S. His son, Jon Jr., would make a great POTUS.
RIP Wendell Castle. One of the greatest woodworker/furniture makers that ever lived. His working studio in upstate NY is a sight to behold.

He did make some anti-Semitic comments, recorded on tape while speaking with President Nixon, for which he [Graham] later apologized.

It wasn't until 2012 that his website removed reference to Mormonism as a cult. And when he did so, the backlash from some in the "evangelical" community was pretty fierce.
