It seems his fight with pancreatic cancer has ended. So many memories tied into this simple game show.

I'm happy Alex got to hear this before his passing: https://twitter.com/Jeopardy/status/…718051840?s=20

Aye, he really seemed a good bloke. I think he started with the show in eighty-four, which was a key year for me in many ways, so it stuck in my memory. Alex always seemed upbeat and positive, curious about learning things, and always polite. I wonder if Jennings might be one to vet to see if he could be up to the ultimate challenge: Filling some difficult shoes.

This is one of the worst kinds of cancer. I once lost a grandfather to that.

Yeah lol, I've not clicked a blind link since the late nineties myself. Learned that lesson the hard, painful way!

It is not a joke. We had this discussion a few times. How much effort is it to add a few words to describe what it is about, as a service to those who have more to do than click on just any link.
