    So sad to hear about Richard Griffiths, but also sadly, I'm not surprised. He looked positively gray the last time I saw him in an interview.

    So sorry to hear about Richard Griffiths who did such a wonderful job as Vernon Dursley. I've also seen him in several other series and films as well. He was yet another talented, older British actor and I'll miss him.

    Legendary music producer Phi Ramone has died at the age of 72. Another great one gone.

    Re: Rest In Peace.

    Just read on CNN that Roger Ebert has passed away....he will be greatly missed. RIP.

    Heard just yesterday, or was it this morning, that his cancer had come back. He'd said that he was going to scale back his work load but still do reviews, and now today, he's gone. Just way too many people dying of cancer.

    Just saw it . . .

    Roger Ebert Dies at 70; Chicago Sun-Times Film Critic Dead : People.com

    Oh my goodness.

    I believe it WAS just yesterday that they said his cancer'd come back and as a result, he was scaling back his workload.

    Wow.

    RIP, Mr. Ebert.

    And my prayers are with Chaz, your wife.
