    Very well said, that actually brought a tear to my eye. The man was definitely a legend of legends.

    Apparently, Richie Havens passed away not too long ago. The man who opened Woodstock fell through the cracks in the media.

    Hence rendering all jokes at the expense of his name unfunny. Particularly given the circumstances.

    I met him once when I worked at a hotel that some of the race drivers stayed at; thought about keeping his registration form as an autograph souvenir.

    My first reaction, I must confess, was "wow, that's a good run, I didn't know she had still been alive". She did a great job with the part, killing her character off really took her out of the public eye, but she kept working for years after with a lot of range.
    Darth Vader is becoming the Mickey Mouse of Star Wars.

    Kylo Ren - came from Space Brooklyn, although he moved to Space Williamsburg before it was trendy.

    The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.
