I know this was covered in the breaking news thread but with all the other stuff being discussed on that thread it is easy to miss things like this. Thought it might be a good idea to have a separate thread for the passing of famous people. Star trek legend Leonard Nimoy has passed away at the age of 83 from complications due to C.O.P.D.

Coleman was still doing the weather at 79 years old? Do they not get paid very well?

Sad autopsy news on Tom Petty.  Turns out he had a hip stress fracture that turned into a displaced femoral neck fracture.  An X-ray and then a hip replacement and he would have been good to go.  Instead, he overdosed on painkillers trying to treat the pain.  Pretty tough to even walk with that fracture.  So sad.

John Coleman has passed

Most of you probably never heard of him but he was one meteorologist to speak the truth about man made global warming. He was really funny on the nightly news when I was a child in Chicago. RIP John.

edit; kind of a long video global warming

John Coleman, founder of The Weather Channel.

Early in his career he was the weatherman for WBBM in Chicago. He was truly a fun guy. I recall in the late 60s watching him as he humorously demonstrated how to craft and use a cardboard box for watching the eclipse.
