    John Spencer (Leo McGarry) died
    The actor John Spencer who played Leo McGarry in the West Wing died this morning. A sad case of life imitating art if you watch the series (we're a little behind the US here).

    That's just a bit spooky for anyone who's watched the series.

    I felt the same way when I heard of him dying of a heart attack today. This new season is pretty bad, so you're watching better episodes that we are right now anyway. Rumors are everywhere that the show will be canceled after this season. This year they are running a story line of a liberal Republican running for the White House. In the world today, this is a bit strange and hard to believe. However, I do see "Rudy" making a run for the "real" White House next time, but he's not going to be as liberal as the character they are portraying in "Alan Alada".

    He was on another show I remember from the past. I think it was called "LA Law". He was quite a bit younger back then. So was I.

    WW is one of only a few shows I will watch on TV, mostly I listen to them while on the computer. John was 58 not 56. However, either 56 or 58 he looked much older than either. He must have lived a very hard life as a young man.

    It will be interesting how the writers will go with the rest of the season and the outcome of this election, due to the fact that there will now be no candidate for VP for the Democratic party.
