Phew, we’ve hit three

March 19, 2008

In the past 36 hours three celebrities have died. That means the onslaught has paused for now—if you believe that stuff like this comes in threes. Here’s the recap:

Tuesday morning, award-winning director Anthony Minghella died of a brain hemorrhage in London. He was 54 years old.


Yesterday as well, Arthur C. Clarke, a visionary science fiction writer died in Sri Lanka at age 90.


And finally, another luminary of the entertainment world, Ivan Dixon died (also of a hemorrhage) at age 76.



He’s the African-American guy with the shovel, not the French-American guy with the shovel.

More to come…
