Dear Buzz Out Loud Gang,
I hate to leave a sad note on the forum but this particular individual really deserves mentioning. Music Composer Basil Poledouris has died. I am sure that many of you have seen the films in which he composed music for. Basil Poledouris also composed the music for the opening ceremony for the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia, so he has a special memory among many Georgians.
