Richard Harris 1930-2002

“He was a man, take him for all in all,
I shall not look upon his like again.”


Personally I was really sad about this. I always liked Richard Harris. He is yet another of the generation that were stars when I was a kid who has passed away recently. I was born in '65 and when people from the “Golden Age” of Hollywood passed away it was not so sad. But now people I grew up with are hitting their 60’s and 70’s and dying and it just seems to hit more.

My kids were a bit bummed because he’s one of the principal characters in the Harry Potter movies.

He made a really good Dumbledore, at that.


Wasn’t he that guy in Orca with that chick from “10”?

And now, all of a sudden, it’s raining after sundown, the snow is like, out of control, and it’s, get this, slushing on the hillside. Sigh.
