Finally, we need to take a moment today to acknowledge the passing of the legendary Sir Roger Moore, of James Bond fame, of course, but also of ffolks, Ivanhoe, Maverick, The Saint, The Cannonball Run and so many more. He was 89. You can read more here at The New York Times. Give For Your Eyes Only a spin on Blu-ray tonight and raise a vodka martini in his honor. Moore will surely be missed.
Back tomorrow. Stay tuned…
