He's No Longer In A World

In a world where one mortal speaks with the "voice of God", it is too easy for that voice to be silenced.

Don LaFontaine died yesterday. You may not know the name, but you certainly know the voice. He did the narration for over 5,000 movie trailers and recently appeared in a Geico commercial as himself. (He had a good sense of humor about what he did.)

What a shame to lose him and his wonderful voice. If you're religious, please say a prayer for him in the appropriate fashion... by which I mean deep, sonorous tones.

Edit: It would be cool if they did a tribute to him at the Oscars or something. It could be a montage entirely of trailer clips where he said "In a world"... That'd almost be enough to make me actually watch the Oscars!
