    Forwarded from FILMUS-L:
    Heard this morning that Joe Caporiccio was seriously injured last
    week, struck by a car while out walking. Apparently he's in a coma.
    This was from a friend of his, who intends to post details on the FSM
    board for those interested.

    So sorry to hear that.
    I always liked the info he shared with us on the board, and like it or not, that huge debate he had with Robert Harris over the Criterion edition of Spartacus was an excellent read.
    Here's to hoping he gets better.

    I too enjoyed his spirited debates (i.e. disagreements) with RAH.
    I will pray a mighty prayer for his complete and full recovery. Prayer works!!!!

    Joe is one of my favorite people on the forum, and I have a lot of respect for his accomplishments.
    This upsets me greatly. Get well, Joe!

    This apparently occurred last Friday night.
    A mutual friend shared the information that he was
    aware of visitors, but had been placed in an induced coma
    to aid his recovery. He had a large number of broken bones,
    including skull fractures.
    Joe and I agree on few things, except a speedy
    recovery which I wished him over the weekend.
    Our friend probably said it best, and its one of the things that I have to keep reminding myself about Joe.
    He can be a real pill, but he means well.
    I'll have the word passed along that you are all thinking of him and wishing him a speedy recovery.
