Double RIP

I'm going to do a rare thing tonight (for myself, that is) and be a man of few words.

Two people who had subtle but lasting impacts on my life passed away today. One was a man, confoundingly young beyond his years yet long legend in his own field, who will most likely (and sadly) always be remembered more for how he influenced others than for what he did himself. The other was in today's world probably most often associated with something — wine — that I write about here more than anything else. Yet for me, he'll always be indelibly stamped in my memory as the protagonist of one of the most memorable syndicated television series of my childhood years.

Tonight, I say rest in peace Alex Chilton (1950-2010).

And rest in peace Fess Parker (1924-2010).
