I just read that. I was a little stunned.

From his Wiki page:

Quote:
In 2015, Jones was diagnosed with primary progressive aphasia, a form of frontotemporal dementia that impairs the ability to speak and communicate. He had first given cause for concern during the Monty Python reunion show Monty Python Live (Mostly) in July 2014 because of difficulties learning his lines. By September 2016, he was no longer able to give interviews. By April 2017, Jones had lost the ability to say more than a few words of agreement.

Jones died on 21 January 2020 from complications of dementia at his home in North London.
Terry Jones was 77.

Jim Lehrer, the retired PBS anchorman who for 36 years gave public television viewers a substantive alternative to network evening news programs with in-depth reporting, interviews and analysis of world and national affairs, died on Thursday at his home in Washington. He was 85. ...

… “I have an old-fashioned view that news is not a commodity,” Mr. Lehrer told The American Journalism Review in 2001. “News is information that’s required in a democratic society, and Thomas Jefferson said a democracy is dependent on an informed citizenry. That sounds corny, but I don’t care whether it sounds corny or not. It’s the truth.” …

… Critics called Mr. Lehrer’s reporting, and his collaborations with Mr. MacNeil, solid journalism, committed to fair, unbiased and far more detailed reporting than the CBS, NBC or ABC nightly news programs. To put news in perspective, the two anchors interviewed world and national leaders, and experts on politics, law, business, arts and sciences, and other fields. ...

Jim Lehrer was a great fan of public bus transportation writing both fiction and nonfiction about them. He may have even driven them.
He also replied personally to every letter I wrote him.

Orson Bean was killed by a car while walking.
He was a very funny man.
I am pretty sure it was in Mad Magazine where he showed how to make a fir tree out of a newspaper. I made two many years apart, but can't find the instructions now.
