Michael K. Williams https://www.nytimes.com/2021/09/06/arts/michael-k-williams-dead.html.  He was a multi-talented individual who brought some truly iconic and unforgettable characters to life (Omar Little is probably the biggest fan favorite), but obviously he had numerous personal struggles throughout his own life.  He was obviously well regarded by his colleagues and sounds like a genuinely kind and giving person as well.

Yes--Mcdonald didn't want audiences to regard him any differently, and nothing was allowed to get in the way of the comedy. The guy made me laugh a lot.

Norm was fearless: "I bet it's spelled b-o-r-e-d!"

The confirmation of the death of Gabby Petito is due after the forensic autopsy tomorrow, but the announcement to the family has been made and investigations have apparently moved towards a likely criminal charge of her fiance, who is himself missing, shortly.

Both families are dealing with difficult issues; peace to them all.

In annual memoriam:

Dr. Elizabeth Cain, musicologist, Sarum chant expert, Latinist, vocalist, liturgist, and gatekeeper (in the old liturgical sense) to that rarified culture of individuals who, like her, saw no reason to distinguish between singing music and studying its history; knowing how to make a good jousting parry and how to cut a good galliard caper; and translating a medieval musical source and chewing out a blinkered bishop who didn't quite see the point of women's (Anglican) ordination.

She god-parented at least two of us that I know of who seek to follow in her dancing footsteps and live by her joyful precepts (and chew out any bishops or their like who still need it, even yet today).

+ 2016.09.30 (Feast of St. Jerome)

RIP

Updated: The cause of death was identified and homicide confirmed. The fiance remains unfound, but has been federally charged with credit card fraud for the use of her cards in the days after her probable date of death, which was laterally referred to by the coroner as due to domestic violence.

The family has created an endowed fund to assist others in such circumstances, specifically in response to concerns that a documented imbalance in searching and prosecution exists; in the process of searching for Petito, two other missing individuals' remains have been located.
