    Oh no!!!! I was not aware of this! PM was my idol as a young boy. I devoured The Prisoner over and over again – his unflappable cool mixed with suppressed hostility was my model of manliness for my entire youth. I know many of the episodes by heart.

    I have posted on the show frequently [] most recently.

    I am deeply saddened by this note, but death comes to us all. The subject of one of the dream-epsisodes, actually.
