Honestly, I forgot until reading it today that Barry Bonds did wind up beating his record. (Bonds/McGuire/Sosa beating Roger Morris’s record is so much more memorable)

I'm not happy about being correct on Larry King. As soon as I heard he had covid I knew he was done.

To the point that I've been surprised he's still alive at least once or twice in the last five years.

Ugh, Mira Furlan.

Babylon 5 debuted just shy of 30 years after Star Trek, and no main cast member had died (although Roddenberry had). We're right at 27 years post-debut for B5 and only 4 main cast members are still with us.
