Some knew him as Professor Brainard, some called him Genie, and some recognized him as Mrs. Doubtfire, or Mr. Keating, or better yet ‘my Captain’. With the loss of these iconic identities, it is inconceivable that the world really only lost one man this summer. Nevertheless, the suicide of actor...
