The curtain has run down for a great actor.

 

EDIT:  Tor has kindly informed me I've been a chump.  Actually, I'm happy he did - I like a world with James Earl Jones in it.

We lost a brilliant mind. Oliver Sacks has left us.

 

nyt:Oliver Sacks, the neurologist and acclaimed author who explored some of the brain’s strangest pathways in best-selling case histories like “The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat,” using his patients’ disorders as starting points for eloquent meditations on consciousness and the human condition, died Sunday at his home in New York City. He was 82.

"A life well lived"- quote from a recent article by Dr Sacks. It reads as if he is writing his own obituary. An inspiring human being.
