    He was as clumsy as he was stupid.
    Recently, there was a reckoning. It occurred on November 4, 2014 across the United States. Voters, recognizing the failures of the current leadership and fearing their unchecked abuses of power, elected another party as the new majority. This is a first step toward preventing more damage and undoing some of the damage already done. Hopefully, this is as much as will be required.

      Was that really called for? If you don't like the actor fine, but such a response to a death notifcation may come across as being in rather poor taste, or an attempt to incite a flame. Just my thought on it.

      "There are no good wars. War is always the worst possible way to resolve differences. It degenerates and corrupts both sides to ever more sordid levels of existence, in their need to gain an advantage over the enemy. Those actively involved in combat are almost always damaged goods for the rest of their lives. If their bodies don't bear scars, their minds do, ofttimes both. Many have said it before, but it can't be said to enough, war is hell. "

        I guess he meant the role he was playing, not the actor... still not so nice to say when one passed away...

            That's the only thing you can say when the actor died today? If yes, then you
            should have posted nothing at all.
            That's outrageous! The least thing you can do now is apologize yourself.

                  that was a good line Z.
                  I didnt remember who he was till I read that he was the guy who was killed by vader . . . not like there isnt enough officers who went through that.

                  a lot of our beloved Sci-Fi actors are leaving us . . . this is sad indeed.

                          LOL

                          What a perverse thing to say, now that he actually is dead : O

                          :Edit:



                          Poor bastard.....

                            Are you guys serious??! Did this REALLY need clarification?

                            It was the BEST piece of Vaderism from any of the first 3 films.

                              Word.

                              If Sheard was so important to the people who complained, why didn't they even catch the reference?

                              You've failed me for the last time!
