Sam Shepard RIP

Sam Shepard plays were depressing as hell, but he did managed to capture something about rural desperation years ago that other writers completely missed (and most still miss today).

I loved this scene in The Right Stuff (even though it being an unplanned NF-104 flight was fictionalized for the movie). In real life Sam Shepard (unlike Chuck Yeager) hated flying. Shepard's father was an Army pilot in WWII.

Godspeed Sam Shepard.
