Migos rapper Takeoff was shot and killed.

Other members of Migos are Offset and Quavo. Jeopardy! recently asked for Migos when spotted Quavo, and LL recently asked for Offset, who is married to and has children with Cardi B. So this might come up.
I had a dream that I was asleep and then I woke up and Jeopardy! was on.

Mehran Karimi Nasseri, an Iranian who lived in Charles de Gaulle airport for 18 years.
His story inspired the Spielberg/Hanks/Zeta-Jones film The Terminal

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-63612017
Born in 1945 in the Iranian province of Khuzestan, Mr Nasseri flew to Europe from Iran in search of his mother in the late 1980s.

He had been expelled from London, Amsterdam and Berlin for not having the correct immigration documents. Unable to go anywhere else, he made the airport's 2F Terminal his home.
...
Despite being granted refugee status and the right to remain in France in 1999, he stayed at the airport until 2006, when he was taken to hospital to be treated for an illness. He then spent time living in a hostel using the money he had received for the film, French newspaper Libération reports.

Mr Nasseri returned to the airport a few weeks ago, where he lived until he died, an airport official said.
The best thing that Neil Armstrong ever did, was to let us all imagine we were him.

Many times, learning that a cultural figure has died makes me stop and reflect on that person's career and express a varying level of appreciation for the bit of joy he or she brought into our lives. The news of Kevin Conroy's death was more of the "Aw, man, that sucks" variety. His Batman voice work was truly special.
