I absolutely do not wish to take away from the impact we Star Trek (OS, TNG, DS9, VOY or ENT) feel at the loss of Nichelle Nichols but I just learned about the passing of the voice actress who voiced Ursula in the Little Mermaid.

Vin Scully died yesterday, at the age of 94. This is probably kinda local, even for US folks, but it's personal for me. Not because I'm a huge sports fan. (I'm not.) But because some of my fondest memories of my childhood are me hanging out in the garage with my dad, puttering around with stuff, with Vin Scully narrating the Dodgers game on his little transistor radio. I will never forget his voice. God speed, Vin.

Anne Heche has been declared brain-dead after a fiery car crash on August 5, although she remains on life support pending organ donation....

That's too bad. I respected her skills as an actress, but I understand she had a somewhat troubled life. 

I hope she gets the peace she needs, and the closure the family can get.

But being a political figure, we probably can't say much here besides honor him...

In total, that's the fourth major figure behind the fall of the Soviet Union dying within the space of a year. The others are

  • Gennadyi Burbulis of Russia
  • Stanislav Shushkevich of Belarus
  • Leonid Kravchuk, the first president of Ukraine

That leaves Vitold Fokin of Ukraine as the last living signatory of the Belovezha Accords.

Rest in peace, some news media say she was the monarch who has had hold the title the longest. Not true but obviously true for current ones. 
Historically it was not uncommon to become the monarch as an kid and if you lived to be very old you would rule longer.
