Thank you very much for your service to our country! It is deeply appreciated.
Towards the end of the day I popped onto a couple of my favorite news sites and read that Dino de Laurentiis had passed away. The producer of Dune (one of my favorite guilty pleasure movies), the Hannibal series of films and Flash Gordon (a bit before my time) was 91.
The BBC news story had an accompanying photo (couldn't find a credit anywhere, just the "AFP" in the corner). His face was so full of character, that I sat down with my moleskine and pencil and discovered that I am seriously rusty! Yikes.
Thanks for stopping by!
