Note to _sterno_: this is NOT a run-of-the-mill "some dude died, woe is me" post.
It is, however, a some dude died post. John Spencer, in this case, and it's too bad. He was a good actor, and appeared on one of my favorite shows (West Wing).
However, one can't help but question his timing. Wouldn't the show's legacy be much greater if his death had led to the end of production after season 3?
Thoughtless, I say.
