It's being reported on the news wires that John Spencer died of a heart attack today. He was 58 and would have been 59 on Tuesday. He is currently best known as Leo McGarry on The West Wing, one of my all time favorite shows but he has an extensive stage career as well. I didn't realize that he went to the Professional Chidren's School which is, I know what Bernadette's high school is now called. I'm not sure if its the same school or if there was another school that went by Professional Children's School and merged with Bernadette's school but seeing as they are just over a year apart in age, they may have known one another as teenage performers.

Very sad. The show won't be the same without him.
