Rory Markas Passes Away
Update: The Times' Fabulous Forum reminds us that Markas had a blood clot in his brain on November 1, 2008. You've just gotta wonder if that wasn't the proximate cause of his death. As Vinny says, if you want to make God smile, tell Him your plans.
Update, 1/6: Oh Lord, I've misspelled his name in the mast and elsewhere here. Fixed, too.
[At] the Golden Mike ceremony [where Markas introduced Scully] two years ago, Scully said he remembered that Markas was "more than generous and I was very touched. It was so typical of him to be so warm and giving. That's the way I'll always think of him."
Very sad day. Condolences to his family.
PS: According to the story, Palmdale, not Palm Springs. I don't know which is correct.
