Dammit, didn’t see the other William Windom thread.
According to the timestamp on the Phyllis Diller story, her death was reported 35 minutes ago. You can’t be more ahead of a death notice unless you killed her yourself.
Yeah, in the Death Pool, we don’t appreciate cheating.
Well, in my defense, it was already on Facebook (and I didn’t put it there).
And Tony Scott makes three.
I met William Windom once, at a Star Trek convention. I talked with him for about half an hour. He was witty and gracious, and he just glowed when I told him I’d loved “My World and Welcome to It.” He said hardly anyone ever mentioned that one at Star Trek conventions. I will miss him.
That show introduced me to James Thurber. I did not like his ‘turning insane’ in Star Trek.
Since each of these people has his or her own thread, I’m going to close this one.
