Is he a hero because he a police officer who died in the line of duty or is he a zero because he was thwarting the will of the "patriots" at the Capitol?

From a WAPO article,
Quote:
He supported Donald Trump. She supported Hillary Clinton.

But in the midst of the 2016 election, Brian D. Sicknick, an officer with the U.S. Capitol Police, and Caroline Behringer, an adviser for a liberal congresswoman, found common ground.

They met mornings at an entrance to the Capitol, she heading to her office, he protecting those doing the people’s work. They chatted about unwinding in the outdoors and joked about being on opposite sides of the political divide tearing the nation apart.

"There was a shared humanity," Behringer said, noting, "My job was very much dependent on him keeping me safe."
A clear case of consorting with the enemy. Obviously, God was punishing a traitor of long standing.

Mira Furlan, actress, passed from West Nile Virus. Best known to me for her role on the series Babylon 5.

Last fiddled with by Uncwilly on 2021-01-22 at 18:52 Reason: edited to clarify that West Nile Virus was the cause of death, not a movie/tv show

Larry King
Quote:
Larry King, the amiable, Brooklyn-born broadcaster whose live global TV program on CNN made him one of the most famous talk-show hosts in the world, has died in Los Angeles.

Rarely out of the spotlight, the 87-year-old King died Saturday at Cedar-Sinai Medical Center, Ora Media, the company behind programs "Larry King Now" and "Politicking with Larry King" said in a statement. King was hospitalized with COVID-19 earlier this month.

I never knew how old she was. A lot of the cast members from B5 are gone. Jerry Doyle, Andreas Katsulas, Richard Biggs, Jeff Conaway, Stephen Furst, and probably others. How do I remember their names? I have the entire video collection on discs.
