Nicholas Courtney has passed away.

While I've only seem a handful of Doctor Who episodes with Courtney/the Brigadier, he was a classy gentleman, a hardened badass, and perhaps the very epitome of the 'stiff upper lip.'

From what I hear, the actor was polite to fans of all ages, as well as his co-workers.

A Northland alumni, a previous Northland Dean, and a classy, classy actor. This has not been a good week.

Ok, seriously, what happened to the Northland alum and Rick Fairbanks? I haven't heard anything except some cryptic remarks on facebook!

Bjorn Norgaard was hit by a car after Book Across the Bay. Rick Fairbanks died of Pancreatic cancer.

Some dumbshit 16-year-old driving his daddy's truck hit Bjorn while he was skiing across the bay after the race. The kid (and his passenger!) left Bjorn to die on the ice, and it wasn't 'til next morning that some snowmobilers found his body.

The kid's daddy brought him to the cops the next morning; I hope they throw the fucking book at him.

I hope they fucking beat him with the book. Vehicular homicide, fleeing a scene, etc., etc.

Have they said whether Bjorn would be alive if the people in the car had helped?
