Default Tom Clancy died today

According to his publishers Twitter feed, Tom Clancy died today Wednesday the 2nd.
I am sure he needs no introduction here.
Red Storm Rising was required reading for many Cadets.

The "Sum of all fears" was another masterpiece.

Rest in Piece Mr Clancy

He will be Missed. I have stayed up late many nights turning page after page unable to put one of his books down and sleep. God Speed Tom and Thanks.

I remember being addicted to Sniper Strike while playing Rogue Spear on MSN Gaming Zone back in '99. I'm sure I still have that and the Urban Operations disks laying around somewhere.
