R.I.P. Michael Clarke Duncan

I just learned this morning that the actor Michael Clarke Duncan died yesterday from complications of a heart attack.  He was only 54!  I am not a fatuous follower of celebrities, but this man impressed me in the few films I saw in which he appeared.  I thought he was an actor of truly great ability and presence.  I also thought he deserved the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor in The Green Mile.  I find that he did win a Saturn award for the role as Best Supporting Actor, and that is good.

You departed rather earlier than we should have preferred, and that is how it sometimes goes.  So farewell, Michael.
