Burt Reynolds Has Merged With The Infinite
By now all the world knows that Burt Reynolds has passed beyond this veil of tears.
Here's to you, sir. I have spent more of my adult life re-watching Smokey and the Bandit than I really should mention, and once captivated/ hijacked a social event at a libraries conference by laying out the tale of that movie to a table full of people who admitted they'd never seen it (and detailed why it's important film making).
All of us down on Earth always wished we could be as cool as you, and now you'll just have to enjoy the envy of every single person in the afterlife.
We'll miss you, Burt.
