General Hammond of Texas is dead

Or at least, actor Don S. Davis is dead. I'm just now hearing this, but it happened Friday. Also Friday was the release of the DVD Stargate: Continuum, which I didn't know about either.

Don S. Davis was at the last convention I volunteered at three or four years ago. He was a very nice guy, and he signed autographs, and he read us a poem about smoking with Willie. Most of my regular readers won't probably won't understand, but that's Willie Nelson. A general hanging out with Willie is an interesting image.

Anyway, in my little group we are glad that we got to meet him and we're sorry that he's gone.

Cool guy. Glad you could meet him. Seeing him on "Stargate", he was always familiar as someone I'd seen elsewhere. Now, looking at your imdb link, I can see why. He's got one massive resume, including appearances in much of TV science fiction that has not been "Star Trek" (MANTIS, X-Files, etc).

Oh, I got some of that wrong. He died Sunday, and the DVD doesn't come out til July 29th.
