    Ruthie Tompson liked to tell people that she and Mickey Mouse "grew up together."

    And that wasn't an exaggeration: The legendary animator spent nearly 40 years with the Walt Disney Company, working on virtually every film from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs to The Rescuers until her retirement in 1975. She even earned the title "Disney Legend" at the turn of the millennium, as the employee with the longest history with Walt and Roy O. Disney.

    Tompson's connection with the company dates back to her childhood in the 1920s, when she appeared as a live-action reference model for Disney's early Alice Comedies. She began her career in the "ink and paint" department as a teenager and eventually worked her way up to animation and scene checking, becoming one of the first three women to be admitted into the Hollywood camera union in the process.

      Jean Ledwith King, an Ann Arbor attorney who championed gender equity for millions of women in education, employment, politics and sports, and helped to lay the foundation for Title IX, the federal antidiscrimination law, died Oct. 9. She was 97.

      In 1970, King filed her most significant educational action against the University of Michigan, coauthoring a complaint filed with the U.S. Department of Labor for sex discrimination in admissions, financial aid, employment and athletics.

      The complaint sparked a federal investigation and led to reforms at many colleges and universities across the nation. When U-M refused to comply with the Department of Health, Education and Welfare’s demands to increase women’s admissions and provide gender equity in athletics, it became the first university in the country to have federal grants withheld.

        Ravil Isyanov, a Soviet-born American character actor who appeared in movies including Defiance, K-19: The Widowmaker and Transformers: Dark of the Moon and in numerous TV series, most recently playing Kirkin on CBS’ NCIS: Los Angeles, died Sept. 29 at his home in Los Angeles after a long illness. He was 59.

        Isyanov was born August 20, 1962 in Voskresensk, Russia (then part of the USSR). Drawn to performing arts from a young age, he enrolled in Perm Institute of Culture to study directing after graduating from high school in 1980. His studies were interrupted in 1982 when he left to complete a two-year mandatory military service in the Soviet Air Force and was stationed in the Russian Far East.

              God, I remember being required to read Hatchet in school (did not enjoy survival books then, really struggled with it). I always thought he died ages ago.

                Rob Skiba, an influential figure in flat earth and Christian circles, has died of COVID-19, colleagues announced on Thursday. He had been fighting the virus since at least late August, when he began exhibiting symptoms after “Take On The World,” a biblical flat earth conference. “He has been sick since coming back from TOTW,” a Facebook friend posted in early September, adding that Skiba had been hospitalized for low oxygen levels. One of the country’s most prominent advocates of Flat Earth Theory, Skiba was also skeptical of COVID-19 vaccines and some of the illness’ treatments. On the first day of the Take On The World conference, Skiba authored a Facebook post suggesting that the COVID-19 vaccines were dangerous.

                    Jesus, this is terrible news.

                    Former child start Matthew Mindler committed suicide by using sodium nitrate that he ordered from Amazon.com, his mother said today.

                    Mindler bought the product for $15. The Lancaster County Medical Examiner’s Office has confirmed that he died from suicide by sodium nitrate toxicity.

                    Sodium nitrate is used to preserve foods and kills by causing low blood pressure and limiting the flow of oxygen to the body.

                    Monica Mindler said she discovered the Amazon connection while looking at her son’s internet search history after his death. The actor looked up information on buying sodium nitrate and how it was used to end life painlessly. He ordered enough to kill four people, she said.

                      I think it is a stretch to say he was influential in "Christian circles". I'm sure he was influential in some kind of crazy circles, and that those circles contained some Christians, but that seems like it would be pretty limited.

                        Yeah, I sort-of know one Christian who believes that flat earth stuff and he doesn’t even go to church. But the media loves to characterize it that way when one of the crackpots makes headlines.

                              Former U.S. Rep. Dale Kildee, who spent 36 years in Congress championing education reform and Native American sovereignty, died Wednesday, his family said in a statement. He was 92 years old.

                              Kildee, a Flint Democrat, served in the House from 1977 to 2013. He was elected 18 times in a district now represented by his nephew, Rep. Dan Kildee of Flint Township, who remembered him Wednesday as an "incredible" uncle, role model and political mentor.

                              "Dale was always proud that he was from Flint, the birthplace of the modern labor movement. Throughout his work, Dale was kind, humble and dedicated to his constituents. Dale never forgot who he worked for or the constituents who sent him to Congress. And Dale always brought civility and kindness to the political debate, something that we all could learn from today," Dan Kildee wrote in a statement.

                                Betty Lynn, a veteran actress who was best known as the girlfriend of bumbling sheriff’s deputy Barney Fife on television classic The Andy Griffith Show, has died at age 95. She passed on Saturday in Culver City, Calif. of an undisclosed but brief illness, according to the Andy Griffith Museum.

                                Lynn appeared in 26 episodes of The Andy Griffith Show over a span of five years from 1961 to 1966.
