Don LaFontaine, dead at 68

Don LaFontaine, dead at 68. His name may not mean anything to you, his death just another line in the obituary section. Though we did not know the man, his name almost meaningless, virtually every person who has ever seen a movie is familiar with his contribution. The voice of a generation is gone.

In a world where audio/visual media has largely replaced the written word, LaFontaine's work is monumental in scope. He could be likened to a prolific writer who penned the introduction to thousands of novels in times past. Given the liquidity of the new media, his contribution will not likely persist or be held in as high regard as have the great works of men from other ages, but for those in this day, his voice will be sorely missed.
