I don't think that I've expressed this properly to anyone, but I really rather HATE making obituary legacy posts.
Yes, I do it when it's necessary, when a certain actor, actress, filmmaker or personal hero of mine has passed, because I feel it is my duty to eulogize their passing as a testament to their impact on my life personally. But at the same time, I despise doing it for the exact same reasons as to why we actually lose these people: because they are no longer with us, because acknowledging that they've left us is something that takes a lot out of us on an emotional basis. And it's happened so often lately that it drains you. That's why it took me so long to finally end up here, with our passed queen of the Daily Planet & all that is wonderful, ballsy and amazing about our world of fandom, Margot Kidder.
There's very little here that I can say that everyone else already has. Among her political and social activism, among her many film credits, notably BLACK CHRISTMAS (a new dark favorite of mine around the holiday season) and THE AMITYVILLE HORROR, we all know her as the epitome of feisty zeal and uncompromising heart & soul as Lois Lane in the SUPERMAN films. And as an activist fighting for the rights of others, she lived her life in the way that I believe Ms. Lane herself would have lived it herself. For that, for all that she's done for our country and our memories, she belongs to the legends of time.
Thank you, Margot Kidder, for the contribution you've made to our world. The planet won't be the same without our fearless reporter.
