For a second, I thought this thread was referring to actress Jud Tylor.

RIP, Jud Taylor.

I remember seeing him in an interview. Nice guy. By the way, he was 76.

@T'Bonz: When writing an obit, ALWAYS give the person's age. You'll learn this in journalism class. For example:

"TV director Jud Taylor, who worked on Star Trek as well as other television shows and movies, passed away August 6th in New York City. He was 76."

I did. It's in the part that is on Trektoday, not TrekBBS. I have a "short description" field and it's in that part.

http://www.trektoday.com/

Here is the part you see when you go on that page:

Aug 24 - Jud Taylor Passes

The submission never made it to me.

And evidently, there have been issues with my own email which is why it never made it from C to me either.

I debated not posting it due to the time lag when I finally DID get it. But I felt it was still newsworthy.

The email issue has been sorted. Stupid Bellsouth!
