There have been so many, many celebrity deaths this year that everyone - yes, you! and you! and you! - gets a chance to say "OK, this one. Those others, they shocked and saddened me, sure, but this is the one that has touched me personally. This is the one that made me cry."
Tonight was my night. RIP, Robert Vaughn.
When I saw the news, I picked a pen off my desk and said "Open Channel D" into it, very quietly, just in case.
