    I understand he's been suffering from dementia...for a man of such communicative skill, he slowly lost his ability to communicate...

    I think I spent most of my teenage years quoting Monty Python; great man, sad loss.

    I would say he was the more
    He was the more intellectual of the team. As I recall, he became an American, lived here, and was very proud of his citizenship.

    We were young together, and were sure because we were so cool, we would never get old. Now we are falling off our perches right and left.

    My time is coming.

    Ah, what a time, what a generation.

    Great obit ending with

    Jones was asked in a 2011 interview how, out of all his various achievements, he would best like to be remembered.

    "Maybe a description of me as a writer of children's books or some of my academic stuff," he replied. "Or maybe as the man who restored Richard II's reputation. "He was a terrible victim of 14th Century political spin, you know."
