R.I.P. Cory Monteith 1982-2013

It took me a while to decide whether I should say anything about the death of Cory Monteith, who, as you probably know,  was found dead in a Vancouver hotel room yesterday.  Trying not to jump to any conclusions, but he was just out of rehab, and had a long history of addiction. I can't say that I was a huge Cory fan, but Glee, as flawed as it is, meant a lot to me in its first few years.

No matter what you think of Glee,  it's always extra sad when someone who seems to have so much going for them is taken away at such a young age.  Cory, by all accounts a lovely person with a bad problem, leaves behind  friends, family, and a fiance.  My heart goes out to them.  The character of Finn Hudson meant a lot to a lot of people as well, and I feel for those people too.

It's a damn shame.

I thought your comment on Corey's death was very well written and quite appropriate. I am a major fan of "Glee" in the past, but the last few seasons just lacked something. Perhaps all the new charachters and guest stars? I am sure they will address the issue in the coming season. I'd love to see them deal directly with Finn passing away.
