Syracuse is just an hour down the road from here, and we loved Boeheim. The difference between him and Bobby Knight was that Jim threw his jacket instead of throwing a player’s jacket, with the player inside it.
Butler directed both the pilot episode to the 1960s Batman show and the pilot episode to Star Trek, The Cage, which is what inspired Strange New Worlds.
Roger Kastel, probably best known for having designed the poster for Jaws, had died on November 8.
Captain Don Walsh, one of the first two people to reach the deepest point of the oceans, the Challenger Deep, and later consulted with James Cameron on several projects — both real and imaginary — has died.
