. . . A terrible thing to waste

PARIS (AP) – Marcel Marceau, the master of mime who transformed silence into poetry with lithe gestures and pliant facial expressions that spoke to generations of young and old, has died. He was 84 . . .

If you’re under the age of 30, you may never have seen Marcel Marceau perform, but he was a frequent face on television in the 1960s. He is still pretty much the one and only professional mime the average person could name, which says something about his accomplishments, and probably also says something about the popular esteem in which mime is generally held. I suppose it would only be appropriate to observe a moment of silence in his honor.

Also, the article says nothing as to whether Mr. Marceau had any final gestures.
