  1. Do younger adults use forum?

    Yes, absolutely younger people use forums.  Sometime checkout Reddit.  It’s huge and has thousands of sub categories.  The front page largely is populous yip-yap, but other buried categories sometimes can be quite interesting.  I’m not a member, so cannot comment, however I can read endlessly as long as I access it though another search engine that is not google.  There’s a lot of stereotyping there and blaming of baby boomers and Americans in general for the woes of the world, which gets a bit tiresome.  I can only assume it’s easier to sit behind the anonymity of a screen and to seek out confirmation bias than it is to make any concrete difference.   As far as other forums they seem to have gone by the wayside.  I can name a few, one where I met a dear German man and a wonderful friend, who died three years ago tomorrow at age 41.  These boards use to be lively discussions with some genuinely intellectually curious people.  Sadly, I do think those places mostly have diminished or are gone entirely.
  2. Olympia Dukakis, stage, film and television actress, died on May 1, 2021 at age 89 in New York City.  She won an Academy role for Moonstruck (a fantastic film!) in 1987.   [whooosy daisy!  I see from the title edits that Olympia Dukakis already was added to the list.]   Tawney Kitaen, 1980s actress and music video performer (the article said “vixen”), died May 7, 2021 at age 59 in Newport Beach, California.
  3. G. Gordon Liddy, age 90, died March 29, 2021.  Liddy was known for being the mastemind behind the watergate scandal that led to the only resignation of a US president.
  4. Jessica Walter, age 80, died on Wednesday, March 24, 2021.  Walter was another actor who had a career that spanned over 60 years.  She was most recently seen on the television show “Arrested Development” as the matriarch Lucille Bluth and heard as a voice on the animated television show “Archer”.  I only saw a few episodes of “Arrested Development”.   But it was a very well written and well acted show, and very hilarious at times. I should see if it’s streaming anywhere... RIP
  5. George Segal died on Tuesday, March 23, 2021 at age 87 due to complications from coronary bypass surgery.  Segal worked as an actor for over 60 years.  I recall seeing him in older movies on the TCM channel (Turner Classic Movies).  Three that come to mind are “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf” with Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton” from 1966 (really worth seeing if one enjoys classic films). Owl and Pussycat” from 1970 with Barbra Streisand and “King Rat”, a 1965 film about a WWII POW camp.  I watched his more recent TV shows “Just Shoot Me” from the late 1990s and also “The Goldbergs” which currently still is in production.  I’m not sure if he would be considered an actor of international note, but his breadth of work and longevity are significant in US film and television.  He was an actor who I always enjoyed even when he was just a guest on The Johnny Carson Show doing comedy routines and playing his banjo.  RIP.
  6. Larry Flynt founder of Hustler Magazine died today, February 10, 2021, at age 78.
