Apparently this has caused quite a flurry on Facebook, among former ACA classmates trying to find out if its me.

Very sad. But I am so glad you are not 83.

I already knew from other outlets that this was the "other" JB.

But still the headline gave me a momentary chill!

I wouldn't have believed it was you unless the title read: "John Byrne dead in parachute accident at 103."

The TVA is pursuing an infinite number of John Byrne variants.

Tutti-Frutti was a genuinely fantastic piece of comedy drama. It stuck with me for years as a kid (it's very very adult) and I watched again recently and it still had great power.

It's the sort of drama that doesn't get made anymore (and I'm not sure the US ever made them!)

That was painful to read at first glance.

May the other JB rest in peace. I am sorry for his family and friends,  but I am relieved that it wasn't "our" JB.
