Beyond Nuclear extends its condolences to long-time supporter and friend, Susan Clark, whose husband Alex Karras died in the early hours of October 10, age 77. Both actors, Clark and Karras together helped launch Beyond Nuclear and have been generous in sustaining our work. Alex is of course best known for his membership of the Detroit Lions' Fearsome Foursome; his starring roles in films, especially as Mongo in Blazing Saddles; and on television, where he co-starred with Susan in Webster and made frequent appearances on The Tonight Show. A kind, fascinating, multi-dimensional person who cared deeply about the world we are leaving to our children and theirs, Alex was one of the genuine gentle giants. There are numerous tributes and obituaries on line. This one by SBNation's Andrew Sharp, captures some of his spirit well. And listen to NPR's tribute.
