Ricardo Montalban Dies

What a cool cat this guy was. Mr. Roark from Fantasy Island, Khan from Star Trek, and the original salesman for the Chrysler Cordoba, with seats upholstered in "soft Corinthian leather." Although ill with a painful and chronic back problem, he continued to use his rich, distinguished voice of his right up to the end.
Sadly, he died today. The world is a little bit less colorful and interesting because of it.
