    Sadly, Alex died this morning. Born in Sudbury, the revered and beloved host of Jeopardy was 80 years old. RIP Alex . . .

          That news both saddens and scares me on a number of levels.

              May he Rest In Peace.
              This isn't a dress rehearsal. Enjoy yourself. There's no do-over.

                          Unfortunately, it was not a surprise, given the fact that it was stage 4. However, still very sad.

                              Trebek said that publicly a while back -- as a joke. I'm guessing that whoever you heard talking about it read the quote and took it seriously. "I'm dying" is generally an acceptable reason for getting out of a contract.
