That is sad.

He was capable of greatness - Long Good Friday, Mona Lisa, TwentyFourSeven etc.

Haven't you heard? Another actor who worked with Zemeckis twenty-odd years ago also has Parkinsons. Coincidence my arse.

Mohammad Ali Worked WIth Zemeckis?

I was sad to hear this news this morning; not least because of the ongoing debate about stem cell research. I defy anyone to listen to Michael J Fox speak on the matter and not think that perhaps he has a point.

Personally I think connecting someone's misfortune to a curse is a touch distasteful, but that's just me.

No I also find it distasteful.

Amusingly so.
