Losing a great star such as Powers Boothe was quite distrubing, as we were classmates at Southwest Texas State University (now known as Texas State). We each participated in several of the college productions and had some classes together. I have followedl his career ever since I saw the Jim Jones Tragedy, and have enjoyed each of his movie and TV roles. Other than acting in productions together in college, I have not had the opportunity to  visit with Powers, much to my sadness, but I'm sure we will meet up at that great theatre in the sky.
