David Carradine, star of 'Kung Fu,' dies at 72.

I know, I rarely post about the passing of famous people. But I met him once. Oh, I didn't know it until afterwards when my friends told me "You know that was David Carradine, right??" He had a dog of his with him at a coffee shop I used to frequent. I went up to him and asked about his dog, talked to him about his dog, petted his dog. Totally oblivious to the fact he was famous. I can only assume he appreciated being treated like a normal person. I hope he did.

But because of that day, I paid more attention to his career and such, as an almost-acquaintance kind of thing. He was also a Sagittarian Angeleno who loved animals and going to coffee shops. And apparently, also like me, had problems with depression.

So this hits a bit closer than most of these sort of news items. Oh, I'm not sick with sobbing or anything, I didn't KNOW him, but this will probably put a patina on the next few days. I'll miss him.

Rest in peace, Mr. Carradine.
