Isn't it kind of funny? You read a bio about some actor or writer or someone, and it's full of nothing. That person dies, and suddenly the bio fills with all sorts of interesting information, factoids, and more -- all because a bunch of obituaries are published.
Russell Johnson, who played the Professor on Gilligan's Island, died January 16. His bio was minimal, at best, and what facts existed were oddities blown out of proportion simply because there was a published source documenting them. It pissed me off. So I filled out his bio, completed it, and made sure it wsa well-sourced.
We treasure the dead more than the living.
