The force is dark today.

Sad to hear that Carrie Fisher, author, actress, and ‘Star Wars’ heroine, passed away today at age 60. Fisher suffered a cardiac incident on Friday during a flight to Los Angeles from London. Michael Ausiello at TVLine has a roundup of reactions from friends and co-stars. CBS News has a look back at her illustrious career.

Ms. Fisher is known for her acerbic humor. See an example of this above (here too and here too) as Carrie Fisher steals the show in her speech at the AFI Life Achievement Award: A Tribute To George Lucas.
