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.

Why has elegance found so little following? Elegance has the disadvantage that hard work is needed to achieve it and a good education to appreciate it. - Edsger Wybe Dijkstra

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.

Wow, I should really stay away from this thread when I'm not in the brightest of moods.

Give me the eyes, so I see
Give me ears, so I hear
Give me love, so I know what love is
Give me freedom to think, to believe
In something

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

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  :(

"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.”

Of the JRR-Christopher books, I only ever read Hurin, which was pretty messed up but decent. Never was the biggest Tolkien prose fan, but nevertheless RIP.

Quote

Never believe that anti-Semites are completely unaware of the absurdity of their replies. They know that their remarks are frivolous, open to challenge. But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past.
