    This is very sad news. I wish Mr. Hopper as much comfort and peace from suffering as possible during what little time he has left in this life. Dennis, You've led a charmed life, and I appreciate all the brilliant work that has entertained me and millions of other people, going as far back as REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE, and including such milestones as EASY RIDER, APOCALYPSE NOW, and BLUE VELVET. May Your current journey be as peaceful and pain-free as possible, and may your next life be as much fun as this one.
