Watership Down author Richard Adams dies aged 96

quote [ The writer Richard Adams, best known for Watership Down, his enduring tale about intrepid rabbits, has died at the age of 96. ]

Reaper 2016 appears to be trying for some kind of super combo right at the end...

Chose not to go with one of the many creepy-as-fuck Watership Down pics out there.

My parents went to see Watership Down in the theater. Way back in the early 80's, it was playing at the AFB theater in Ramstein.

They expected a movie about a submarine.

Watership Down is in my opinion one of the best books ever written. I've read it countless times and given it away nearly as many more.

At least he made it to 96.

It's the baby boomers. More baby boomers means more baby boomer celebrities, which means more celebrity deaths as that demographic reaches an age where they start passing away en masse.

That we notice these deaths speaks more to our age as a demographic. Older people already had their celebrity idols die and younger people aren't there yet.
