We lost two great men. It is very sad they are now gone but they left a true legacy behind them.

Not all those who wander are lost

And my initiation into news obsession came with nursing my Sunday morning hangovers to "This Week With David Brinkley," back in my misspent young adulthood.

And was going to post a "favorite Gregory Peck movies" thread in his honor. ("To Kill a Mockingbird," "Keys to the Kingdom," "The Yearling," and "Twelve O'Clock High" might be mine, with honorable mention to "The Gunfighter." But that's just off the top of my head ... have to give it more thought ... )

I always thought that if I ever had a son, I would give the middle name of Atticus. Peck did a great job of bringing my favorite literary character to life. RIP.

I am a HUGE To Kill A Mockingbird fan. Dh wont let me name our children after the charachters so I have a kitten named Scout, a hamster named Boo Radley and a turtle named Atticus. Gregory Peck was an amazing actor and brought to life so wonderfully a charachetr I admire a great deal. I was so sad to hear about his death. He also did a great job playing Ishmael from Moby Dick, another of my favorites.

"Goodnight Chet" "Goodnight David" - How many baby boomers remember hearing those words every weeknight? My parents always watched their news show.

I loved the movie and book "To Kill A Mockingbird", the movie is one of the very few that did its book justice.

Why do I feel even older than usual hearing about the loss of both of these gentlemen (from what I read they really were in every sense of the word).
