    Sam Simon, Who Helped Shape ‘The Simpsons,’ Dies at 59

    http://www.nytimes.com/2015/03/10/ar...T.nav=top-news

    Sam Simon, who was one of the major creative forces behind “The Simpsons” and who left the show after its fourth season in a lucrative arrangement that allowed him to spend much of the rest of his life giving his money away, died on Sunday at his home in the Pacific Palisades area of Los Angeles. He was 59.

    After Mr. Simon received his cancer diagnosis, he announced his intention to give nearly all his “Simpsons” royalties to charity. “I’ve given most of it away,” he said in 2013 when asked about his wealth on the comedian Marc Maron’s podcast. “I won’t be rich again until we get our quarterly installment from ‘The Simpsons.’ ”
    Sir, thanks for the laughs. RIP.

    If I blow the conch and they don't come back; then we've had it. We shan't keep the fire going. We'll be like animals. We'll never be rescued.

    RIP. The Simpsons has always been one of my favorite shows, I remember the first primetime episode.

    Sam Simon retained a sense of humor even as he faced death, and he did outstanding charity work. I respect that.
