NaNoWriMo 2010, Day 28 - R.I.P Leslie Nielsen

I'm going to keep writing a little longer tonight, but I want to get this post out of the way. I should easily hit 4,000 words written today before I get to sleep.

Leslie Nielsen passed away today. Reportedly he passed away peacefully, falling asleep in the company of his family. He will be missed by his fans, and almost certainly by the parody movie market. When you get the chance, I wholeheartedly recommend you pick up one of his movies and take the time to enjoy it. Airplane! and The Naked Gun movies are obvious choices, but I would also recommend Dracula: Dead and Loving It, and Repossessed (an Exorcist parody).

Whatever your choice, pick it up, sit for two hours, laugh, and salute the passing of a great comedian.
