The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.   Thomas Jefferson

During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.   George Orwell

If you ever find yourself in need of a safe space then you’re probably going to have to stop calling yourself a social justice warrior. You cannot be a warrior and a pansy at the same time.   Mike Adams (RIP Mike)

That is sad to hear. He was also in the SyFy Battlestar Galactica series toward the end. R.I.P. Dean.

He was a Lynch favorite.  He got his Oscar Nom for his incredibly creepy turn in Blue Velvet. 

He had a career that went back to being a child actor at 7 years old.  He was also a close friend of Dennis Hopper and Neil Young. 

Absolutely one of the better and most underappreciated character actors.

Not towards the end.  He was in the show from season 1, just not a lot of episodes.  He played one of the primary "human" cylon models, and featured prominently in the final season, but was part of the show all along.
