An update to the earlier story: Gary Coleman’s medical condition has been downgraded from “critical” to “no rush,” as the 42-year-old actor has passed away from a brain hemorrhage.

There will, of course, be plenty of heartfelt remembrances and — I hope — a slowed down, dirge-like rendition of the “Diff’rent Strokes” theme, but this blog has never really been a good place for heartfelt remembrances. For example, the Too Soon Joke of the Week goes to Deux Deux Deux, who wrote:

Isn’t a brain hemorrhage just a diff’rent kind of stroke?

So, ummm… my condolences to his friends and loved ones on this sad day. Sorry about the jokes. It’s how we grieve.
