KHAAAANNNNNN!!!!

Sadly, it’s time to say a fond farewell to Mr. Rourke of Fantasy Island and Khan, the nemesis of Captain James T. Kirk. Actor Ricardo Montalban died today at 88.

Every child born in the 70’s will hear Montalban’s voice echoing through their heads for the rest of their lives. Whether it was telling the Fantasy Island greeters, “Smiles! Smiles, everyone!” as the plan approached, or giving drooling car buyers an unhealthy yearning for “soft Corinthian leather,” Montalban made his mark on my generation.
