  • Richard Compton - RIP

    Richard Compton, the director of The Gathering and five first-season episodes of B5, and one of the producers of the first season, has passed away. I'm shocked to say that I just found out about it, and he passed away on August 11, two months ago.

    RIP, Mr. Compton, and thanks for the memories.

    That's too bad. He was only 69, too.

    In memory still bright...thanks Mr. Compton.

      Poor Guy. He got stuck with Grail.
      So, let us not be blind to our differences - - but let us also direct attention to our common interests and to means by which those differences can be resolved. And if we cannot end now our differences, at least we can help make the world safe for diversity. For, in the final analysis, our most basic common link is that we all inhabit this planet. We all breathe the same air. We all cherish our children's future. And we are all mortal.
