D. C. Fontana writer and story editor for a number of television shows over the years, but maybe best remembered for her work for Star Trek over the Original, Animated and Next Generation shows.  I just finished watching THE FANTASTIC JOURNEY series she was story editor for.

I remember Rene best from Benson. I thought he was the funniest thing ever in that show, at the time, the way he straight-man bounced off Robert Guillaume. His DS9 chr. was one of the things I liked about that show.

whenever we hear o' somebody dying from metastatic lung cancer, we cannot help but recall the old yul brynner commercial

am having multiple recollections o' rené on benson with a cigarette in his hand.

maybe smoking were not a cause o' rené's cancer. dunno. nevertheless reminds us just how many has died from the habit.

even so, most memorable rené moment for us were from mash

so it goes

Great, means they'll be playing a lot of Rush on the radio here.

Wasn't a huge Rush person, outside of those few earlyish hits, but another one of those "my childhood past is dying" reminders. RIP  :(

Quote
"Turned wrong way round, the relentless unforeseen was what we schoolchildren studied as 'History,' harmless history, where everything unexpected in its own time is chronicled on the page as inevitable. The terror of the unforeseen is what the science of history hides, turning a disaster into an epic.”
