    A thread for those media, political, scientific, and sports figures who have passed away. Not the really big ones who will get their own threads, maybe, but the smaller names who impacted us nonetheless.

    Aside from those already mentioned above, Harlan Ellison's death really hit me this year.

    Despite his condition you always felt Stephen Hawking always had a little bit more to offer his fellow man. To me, those are the saddest deaths.

    One of my favorite actors. He died like 5 years ago, though. Says the F word better than anyone (and more frequently). Everyone always talks about Samuel L. Jackson, but Dennis Farina does it better.

    Snatch and Get Shorty were his best.

    RIP me as a Jazz season ticket holder. 150% price increase next year? Just because I'm bereaved doesn't make me a sap!

    Wow. From what ticket price to what? Is it across the board or certain seats/certain increase?

    Upper Bowl. From $12 per seat to $30. I was paying about that much a few seasons ago when I was on Row 7 and then they reduced the price to more than half of that for rows 8 and back, so I moved to Row 10. Now I'm going to move to my couch and watch the games instead.

    Not to mention $23 for a beer, burger, and fries.

    I have been seeing similar reactions to other has season ticket holders elsewhere on social media.
    Fans are pissed. Bad move by the below .500 jazz.

    Wow, those ticket prices are ridiculous. Bad move on their part if it causes long-time season ticket holders to leave. The product on the floor at this point doesn't justify this move.
