This is a hard day for fans of Speculative Fiction:

Ricardo Montalban, the Mexican-born actor who became a star in splashy MGM musicals and later as the wish-fulfilling Mr. Roarke in TV’s “Fantasy Island,” died Wednesday morning at his home, his family said. He was 88 (msnbc).

I am at a complete loss for words.  My heart goes out to his friends and family.  He will be missed.
