    The news didn't denigrate Carrie Fisher's memory for me.
    We all struggle with inner demons.
    IMHO, her death was more of a cautionary tale.
    Trans-oceanic flights (UK to USA) are LONG.
    Don't do anything that may cause need for medical attention when boarding such flights (excessive self-medication), because it might be a LONG delay (hours) for that ambulance ride to the Emergency Room for help.
    Rapid transport can make all the difference, hence the red lights and sirens on emergency vehicles.
    Unfortunate series of events. In an at home incident, she probably would have survived.

    The Death Of A Great Mind




    During the morning of May 18th, 2017, Jacque Fresco died. His last few days were spent with close friends and he worked on his vision for a better future until the very end.

    The Venus Project was Jacque’s life work, a plan for using science and technology to create a world free of money, military, politicians, and war. It proposed an alternative to the current social and economic structure presently being exercised in our world, and offered an entirely new approach to solving problems.
    Jacque maybe gone, but left us a vision for a better future. Perhaps someday, the world may look back and acknowledge him as one of the greatest minds of the 21st century.

    RIP Jacque, one day, the world will come to realize your mind.

    He was one of my favorites. One of my fav's is "By Dawn's Early Light". He played the President during a Nuclear exchange with Russia. Great movie of a Oops what could happen... He sure was one of the best.

    Whenever I would see Landau in the second half of his life, in movies, even though he was old and growing older, I could still see that young Landau from the 50's and 60's in him. He had that youthful vibe... that spark of life about him that never went away and you could especially see that shining through in his eyes and overall demeanor. He will be missed.

    I particularly enjoyed his early acting in the original TV series "Mission Impossible" and "Space 1999".
    Also, his much later oscar winning role in "Ed Wood", and his appearance in one of the "X-Files" big screen movies.
    He was a talented and prolific actor.

    RIP. Martin Landau dies at 89.


    Landau with co-star and wife, Barbara Bain in "Space 1999" circa 1976.
