    I know! It’s awful and sad. I developed a serious crush on one of my college professors listening to him dissect Studs Terkel.

    I was shocked to see the news about Michael Crichton yesterday! I’m so sad. And Tony Hillerman has been one of my favorite authors for a very long time.

    I’ve been living under a rock, apparently. I just heard about Michael Crichton this morning…oh, sad.

    L.A.–those brainy men are hot, aren’t they? 🙂

    Robin–I didn’t even know Crichton had cancer. I’m sad about all of them, but I think you can say they all lived big lives.

    Marilyn–He was good. My favorite movie of his is Jurassic Park, but for books I always return to Timeline. It just captured me for some reason.

    I’ve actually never heard of the first two, but I’ve definitely heard of MC… Awful, really awful. I hadn’t even heard rumors that he was sick! Not even so much as a whisper.

    Sad.

    Kyle–I hadn’t heard about MC either. WIth his success, I’m choosing to think he led a good, full life with what he had. I just hate that rule of three.
