We really need to start a "Hello, Editor!" category...but we'd probably be spoiled for choice.

Incidentally, someone did correct it in the comments, but obviously it hasn't been updated yet.

I thought it would have been corrected by now.

Wore a snood rather than a bowler.

The most famous golfer of all -- gone.

Sad. I loved THE AVENGERS. A great series!

I've been expecting this for some time now--he and Christopher Lee were the same age. But still, were it not for the continued presence of Honor Blackman, Diana Rigg, and Linda Thorson among us, it would be the end of an era. (I was reading the item on Boing Boing--"John Sneed" indeed--when they fixed, and for a few minutes wondering if I'd lost my mind.) The hell with James Bond--John Steed was The Man.

I really liked MacNee as John Steed. I'm glad Boing Boing fixed the error.
