    George Clayton Johnson, who holds the distinction of writing what turned out to be the first Star Trek episode ever to air, died on Tuesday, December 22 at the age of 86. Johnson's Star Trek: The Original Series episode was, of course, "The Map Trap." Johnson wrote two other proposed TOS stories, but neither was realized. In addition to his Trek work, Johnson wrote stories or scripts for dozens of movies and television shows, including the original Ocean's 11, The Twilight Zone (several seminal episodes, including "Kick the Can"), Kung Fu and Logan's Run (with both the movie and ensuing series based on the novel of the same name he'd co-written with William F. Nolan). Additionally, he wrote many essays, poems, short stories and more, was a welcome presence for decades at conventions, and was proud to be a hippie. Speaking in 2003 to the Archive of American Television, Johnson said the following. "I want to be remembered as a person who early on in his life took control of his life and set goals. When people gave me a lined paper, I wrote the other way. When people expect some certain behavior from me, I will frustrate their expectations."

    RIP Natalie Cole & Wayne Rogers

    Natalie may have overcame her drug addiction, but in the end, drugs probably contributed to her declining health.

    Some other celebrities have died from drugs or drug-related problems, such as Marilyn Monroe, Judy Garland, Bruce Lee, Elvis Presley, River Phoenix, Chris Farley, Michael Jackson, Heath Ledger, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Whitney Houston, etc

    RIP Natalie Cole, the woman who single-handedly made me shed my prejudices towards vocal standards when I first heard Unforgettable and opened me up to a whole new world.
    A beautiful voice that will be missed.
