    Rest In Peace. So very sad to hear about.

    Meanwhile, Kobe hasn’t been dead for 24 hours and Morrissey has managed to make himself look like an idiot about the incident - https://www.morrissey-solo.com/threa...6-2020.145544/

    I'm so bummed. I'm a lifelong Dallas Mavericks fan (so glad they decided to retire number 24) so I grew up watching Dirk vs Kobe. Dirk was obviously my favorite player, but Kobe was THE superstar of the league in the 00s. He embodied the NBA, and what it means to be a competitor. He does leave behind a very complicated legacy, but him and his daughters deaths has left me shocked, even almost 24 hours later. I stayed up so late just to watch his final game. I wanted him to shoot the ball every time he touched it. He put up 60 that game in true Kobe fashion. It's sad to think he won't even get to give his Hall of Fame speech which I know would have been epic. Such a tragic situation.

    Thought this was an interesting, if not terribly sad watch.

    My Air Traffic Controller husband and his ATC friends spent the last 24 hours analyzing, including talking with ATCs at John Wayne, and came up with this same conclusion described in detail below, that it was weather-related and the pilot basically flew into the terrain:

    While senseless, at least it’s likely that nobody on board saw it coming and all died instantly.

    My husband remembers working that helicopter quite frequently back when it was owned by the State of Illinois. It was a very nice helicopter and a mechanical problem isn’t likely.

    Promoter Bill Graham and guitarist Stevie Ray Vaughan died from the same cause.

    Luke Perry apparently left out of the Oscars "In Memoriam" last night. Messed up, esp. considering he was in Once Upon A Time in Hollywood.

    Sid Haig wasn't included either, though granted he's not as mainstream as Luke Perry.

    Larry Tesler, the guy who invented cut, copy and paste.

    A legend. I used copy and paste for this post.

    RIP, Larry.
