This has been a bad few weeks for people in the creative arts whom I admire. Comic book artist Mike Wieringo passed away from heart failure last weekend. One of my absolute favorite writers, Fred Saberhagen, died of cancer, actually on June 29, but I just found out on August 4th. And, of course, Merv Griffin, who despite all his accomplishments, to me, will always be remembered as the Elevator Killer from The Man with Two Brains. Rest in peace, gentlemen. You will be missed.

Oh my goodness - I was just reading an article/tribute to Merv Griffin, and all I could think about was him as the Elevator Killer. Wasn't that a riot?!! And I certainly remember you talking about Fred Saberhagen.
