Damn...lost another of the troupe:

 

Terry Jones, the co-founder of iconic UK comedy troupe Monty Python and a celebrated author and actor, has died at the age of 77, his agent confirmed to the BBC.

Jones was diagnosed with dementia in 2015, which impaired his ability to communicate. In a 2017 interview, fellow Python member Michael Palin disclosed that Jones had become unable to speak.

First Neil Peart from my favourite band of all time and now Terry Jones from my favourite comedic group of all time! The grim reaper has been a treacherous bastard so far. The first passing was a shock and totally unexpected. The second though tragic, was to be expected! 😢

Yeah, the Grim Reaper is pissing me off. At least space the deaths out a little...give people a chance to regroup.

Whoa! RIP...

 

Yeah, it’s so shocking. Prayers to his family and the families of the other 4 victims on the helicopter.  Condolences to Los Angeles. Can’t imagine what the city is feeling right now.

Those damned helicopters.

Yep.  Flying too low in heavy fog... well, and then of course there are these things called hills.

It gets worse...his 13 year old daughter was onboard also. A teammate of hers and a parent too.

Kobe Bryant...and the politicization of his death has already begun. The people of this country never cease to disgust me.

RIP to John, Keri and Alyssa Altobelli.  They have been identified as passengers on the helicopter that crashed killing Kobe and Gianna Bryant and others yesterday.  The Altobelli's are survived by their son and daughter.  Prayers to those kids after losing both parents and sister.  :(

RIP John Andretti after a long fight with colon cancer. The racing community mourns the loss of one of the most diversified drivers in history. He ran “the double” (Indy 500/Coke 600 on the same day), ran dirt tracks, endurance races, sports cars, NHRA dragsters, etc and always has a smile.
