    Very good Canadian actress. Played the mom in Spanking the Monkey and a grieving parent in The Sweet Hereafter. Also did a lot of both Canadian and American TV, most notably 24 and Le Femme Nikita. She was only 60 and had battled cancer for some time. She died in a hospice in her husband's arms.

    UK TV personality Lil' Chris was found dead today. He was only 24. No word on cause of death.

    Still no direct word on Lil' Chris's cause of death, but frankly it sounds like suicide. Various friends of his have commented on his struggles with depression and his family have also released a statement confirming his mental health issues and depression. Very sad.

    Loved her in La Femme Nikita. She had cancer during filming for that as far as I'm aware. Real shame she passed away so young from it.

    Yeah, she was first diagnosed in 1998.

    Anyway, Cynthia Lennon -- John Lennon's first wife -- died today. It sounds like she was an interesting woman who was more forgiving of John than he deserved. RIP.

    I always really felt for her. It sounds like John put her and Julian through hell.

    Imagine.

    ^ Awww. I enjoyed The Dukes of Hazzard when I were a lad.
    Maybe for once, someone will call me "Sir" without adding, "You're making a scene."

    I didn't watch that show, but I'm glad I read his obituary. What a full life he had! He was working until almost the end. RIP, sir.

    Ruth Rendell.

    I've not read any of her books but have seen some TV and film adaptations.

    Anne Meara


    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Actress and comedian Anne Meara, whose comic work with husband Jerry Stiller helped launch a 60-year career in film and TV, has died. She was 85.

    Jerry Stiller and son Ben Stiller say Meara died Saturday. No other details were provided.
    The family statement said: "Anne's memory lives on in the hearts of daughter Amy, son Ben, her grandchildren, her extended family and friends, and the millions she entertained as an actress, writer and comedienne."

    Aw. She had such a great quality for comedy -- timing, attitude, etc. Well, she had a good long life -- long, loving marriage, good career, successful kids, etc.

    That thing about Nash and his wife is sad too. I hope they died quickly before they could feel any pain. And they had good, long lives too. I'm sure some would find it romantic that they died together. I have no opinion on that.
    At my core, I think we're gonna be OK.
