Another death; Another good legacy

It wasn't that far back that Paul Scofield was brought to my mind in relation to discussing Thomas More (in the 'William F Buckley, dead' thread at the Making Light blog). I watched a few online clips from A Man for All Seasons. Now he joins our other recent losses, leaving, we are comforted, a legacy we can continue to benefit from.

From The Guardian, their obituary, personal remembrances, comments from the public; and also the NY Times obit.

[Follows the recent unexpected sudden and early death of Anthony Minghella, and the less-surprising, but still memorable, taking away of Arthur C Clarke — also much-discussed over at Making Light: 'Arthur C. Clarke, 1917-2008', with many links and recommendations for reading.]
