This came over the wire within the hour...

I knew he had a stroke, but the family and doctors apparently were keeping the prognosis private, which is their right.  I admit I was bliind-sided, didn't pick up any clues in my casual reading in previous days.

Beverly Hills, 90210...  really a signpost for television and popular culture of that day.   I'm not a Riverdale viewer, but feel free to add whatever comes to mind.

He was 52.  Christ.

I used to watch BH 90210 because of him and an episode in OZ because of this




RIP Luke

In the UK, at least, it was reported over the weekend that he had a massive stroke on Wednesday.

That's his son, pro wrestler "Jungle Boy" Nate Coy.

No offense MOD, that's not appropriate in my opinion, to show naked pics of someone who just died. Not respectable to his family in the least. Come on. If you died today would you want me to be like - oh look at these naked pics of the dude? Who do you respect? Obama? If that's who you respect would you want me to post naked pics of him and say, "Oh, he got me off?" This is not an ok response. Something must be wrong with you. Think about his mother before you make such insensitive remarks.

I think Luke Perry's death resonates partly due the suddenness by which he was struck down, so jarring in light of his fitness and vitality, and a reminder that there are no guarantees in life.  As well, his appeal as an actor extends to those of us who were more-or-less his age during the original broadcast of 90210, and then, a whole new group of current tweens, teens, 20-somethings (and beyond!) who follow the popular Riverdale.

Here are additional resources of interest on Luke Perry, a mix of articles and clips for both generations:  It's also amazing how much one can miss or forget about the landmarks of an actor's career, so I'll lead with Wikipedia.

Usually I don't response to this kind of BS, If you had just ended your comment with the first sentence, I might have apologize and removed the pic. Then you started to expound with explanation and example which is full of crap. You don't know me to tell me that there is something wrong with me.
