You only live twice, or so it seems.

Hoping she makes a recovery.

Yes. I wasn't sure I should post it, in all honesty.

The BBC have renamed the article to "Jailed music producer Phil Spector dies at 81"

EDIT: And they've apologised for the original headline - BBC apologises for Phil Spector death headline.

Cause of death: Complications of West Nile Virus of all things (spread by mosquitos, for those unfamiliar). Though maybe also how gakked the LA hospital system is at the moment.

That's no age at all. The curse of B5 continues, I don't think there can be many members of the cast left now can there?

That hits a bit close to home for me. I grew up watching the show. I was a geek and a nerd like his character. And, I turn 44 this month, same age as him.
