Michael Bond, Paddington Bear creator, dies at 91


London (CNN)The author Michael Bond, creator of the hugely popular children's character Paddington Bear, has died at the age of 91.
Bond died at home on Tuesday following a short illness, his publisher HarperCollins announced Wednesday in a statement on Facebook, calling him a "giant of children's literature."
Bond was born in Berkshire, England in 1926 and began writing in 1945, after serving in World War II.

He was working as a cameraman for the BBC when he came up with the idea of a small toy bear that he named after Paddington Station in London, near where he was living at the time.
Bond's first book, "A Bear Called Paddington," was published in 1958, and follows the adventures of a small orphaned bear as he travels from Peru to the British capital.

He is found at Paddington Station wearing a tag saying "Please look after this bear. Thank you," and is taken in by the Brown family.

Bond has said that Paddington was inspired in part by his memories of Jewish children who were evacuated to London during World War II.

Nelson Ellis, who played Lafayette on True blood, has died.  He was only 39.  Not really a fan of the show but he was a memorable character, one of the few I could actually remember from True Blood.

Horror icon, George A. Romero has died.

One of my favorite directors; I'm glad I got to meet him two years ago at a convention.  He hadn't made much of note lately, but his impact upon film, and just culture in general, is immeasurable.

Chris Cornell, 52.

What the fuck man. This one hurts. Beautiful voice and great music and way, way, way too soon. I have a bad feeling it's going to be heroin or a general overdose.
And on Chris Cornell's birthday, Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington is dead likely by suicide.

Jay Thomas, ‘Cheers’ Actor Who Often Played Jewish Characters, Dies At 69
August 25, 2017 By JTA

(JTA) — Jay Thomas, a well-known actor who said he was often mistakenly thought to be Jewish because he successfully portrayed Jewish characters, has died at 69.

Thomas, an actor and radio personality whose work on the television series “Murphy Brown” won him two Emmy Awards in the early 1990s, died of cancer on Thursday at his home in Santa Barbara, California, the New York Times reported. He also played in “Cheers,” portraying Jewish characters in both series.

Thomas, who grew up in New Orleans, found amusement in the way people confused him with his television characters.

“I always seem to play the role of a Jewish person,” he said in an interview with The Times in 2000. “On ‘Love and War’ I played Jack Stein, a left-wing Jewish man. On ‘Murphy Brown’ I was Jerry Gold, a right-wing Jewish man. And I won an Emmy for that part. The trouble is, I’m not Jewish. But everyone I met in L.A. thought I was a Jewish man from Brooklyn.”

He is survived by his wife, Sally Michelson, whom he married in 1987, and their two children, Samuel and Jacob. In recent years he reunited with a son he had fathered in his 20s who was given up for adoption, the country singer J. T. Harding.
