Jack Palance and Tony Tyler both Dead

while reading the latest issue of MacUser today i learned of the death of Tony Tyler, a regular contributor to the Shutdown column at the back of the magazine. he was 62, not very old by todays standards, but he managed to pack an awful lot in as is told by his friend and colleague, Charles Shaar Murray in a touching obituary here.

yesterday another dinosaur passed away also. Jack Palance had a tough guy image with a face to match. lately he was known for his roles in the City Slickers movies, for which he won a best supporting oscar. Palance also played the part of mob boss Carl Grissom in Tim Burton's Batman (my favourite role of his).

both giants (6' 5", and 6'4" respectively), and both will be missed.
