Good bye, 4SJ

A calico kittycat, anthropomorphised for the occasion walks daintily into Callahan's Bar and places a dollar bill on the counter, and picks up a glass. She walks to the balk line, drains the glass, and says "To Forrest J Ackerman, Megafan and Founding LASFAN", and dashes the glass into the fireplace.

Yeppers, we've lost Forry. Not unexpected, still saddening. End of an era time.

Maybe not - according to the Classic Horror Board, Locus got it wrong. See comments, below. Thanks lisa_marli for the info.

He's Not Dead Yet!
Apparently the Locus and wiki were wrong. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Forrest_J_Ackerman#Reports_of_death

He's still here, so send those notes of appreciation and make sure he goes out knowing he is loved.

Re: He's Not Dead Yet!
Locus got it wrong thanks to rumors from ENGLAND? When Forry lives in So Cal? Plergb. Thanks; I'll keep an eye on the Classic Horror Film Board then.

"Dr Acula Lives!" Sounds like a good movie title to me.

I sent him a card yesterday, fwiw. Have now sent email.
