The first actor to play Worf's son Alexander died on 5 January ... at 33.  WTF, God?

Quote:[A holodeck scenario set in the "Ancient West" includes an obvious prostitute flashing some leg]
Worf:  You programmed this yourself?!
Alexander:  Well ... Mr. Barclay helped.
DHBirr, watching, guessing how Worf would respond:  "I'll have to talk with Mr. Barclay!"
Worf:  I shall have to have a little talk with Mr. Barclay!

I'd consider that a borderline case in terms of "cursed" status. I mean, yes, any man's death diminishes me, but I for one find I can bear this particular diminution with enormous fortitude.

i'm sorry, but i have to say this. Occasionally someone brightens this world simply by leaving it, and while it is not our place to label such individuals ourselves, there are simply some we can rejoice in their passing on to their final justice.
