Thank you for the reply.

It's good to know it was most likely just speculation. I wouldn't want his reputation being tarnished by accusations he wasn't of sound mind towards the end of his life.

Legendary director Isao Takahata (Heidi, Grave of the Fireflies, Tale of Princess Kaguya, Only Yesterday) has sadly passed away.
RIP to this genius.

He has made ny childhood and that of my parents richer with his TV shows, and then continued to impress me with his Ghibli work.

Dammit. :sniffle: I really liked that guy, although I only knew about him from his military-themed TV shows. I wonder if those shows are available on Blu-Ray or DVD, I'll have to check.

Probably the very first time as a kid I heard his voice was in the first Toy Story but didn't realize it until much later in life. First time I really saw him physically in a role was the Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake franchise. Wasn't until 2011 that I first saw in it's entirety Full Metal Jacket and his brilliance in acting out what he was born to do!

Barbara Bush, 92.

Expect H.W. to follow soon.
Among the people who use the Internet, many are obtuse. Because they are locked in their rooms, they hang on to that vision which is spreading across the world. But this does not go beyond mere ‘data’. Data without analysis [thinking], which makes you think that you know everything. This complacency is nothing but a trap. Moreover, the sense of values that counters this notion is paralyzed by it.

And so we arrive at demagogy. - Hideaki Anno, 1996

^ Well, she was refusing care so it was only a matter of time. Still, I hope it was a peaceful passing.
