    RIP Stephen Hawking. He was neither a politician nor an actor but a brilliant scientist who overcame his handicap and made contributions to the betterment of mankind.

    The fact that Hawking lived as long as he did given his condition is noteworthy enough, even without his accomplishments.

    while his body had limits, his mind had none.

    RIP to Sir Ken Dodd.

    I will always remember the laughs and the hair and the teeth.

    He married his partner for 40 years just two days before his passing


    And, this morning, Stephen Hawking - a major advocate for the NHS, and who helped change the world (and our understanding) in so many ways.

    As he said:

    The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge.

    We're seeing that (globally) more and more every day.

    He also made several appearances on The Big Bang Theory. Apparently it was one of his favorite shows. Hey, it's a show about physicists. Of course he would like it.

    Apparently, he was only in 7 episodes. Seemed like more (not including mentions/name-dropping).

    Hawking died on Einstein's birthday.

    That's just perfect.

    One of the greatest minds of our or indeed any time. RIP Stephen Hawking.

    Sadly, today in the UK we also lost comedian and host of UK cult TV game show 'Bullseye'. RIP Jim Bowen, born in Cheshire but a fellow lifelong Lancashire lad.

    Former JONAH HEX writer Michael Fleisher dies.

    https://www.cbr.com/michael-fleisher...e-passed-away/


    Also wrote "The Wrath of the Spectre" stories in Adventure Comics.
    And he wrote the 2-part Crime Doctor-Sterling Silversmith story in DETECTIVE #494-495. Those two issues were the 1st dollar size comics I ever bought.
