    Linda Brown, 76

    Linda Brown, who as a schoolgirl was at the center of the landmark U.S. Supreme Court case that rejected racial segregation in American schools, died in Topeka, Kan., Sunday afternoon. She was 76.


    Her sister, Cheryl Brown Henderson, confirmed the death to The Topeka Capital-Journal.


    The 1954 U.S. Supreme Court case, Brown v. Board of Education, involved several families, all trying to dismantle decades of federal education laws that condoned segregated schools for black and white students. But it began with Brown's father Oliver, who tried to enroll her at the Sumner School, an all-white elementary school in Topeka just a few blocks from the Browns' home.

    The Muppets version

    And Mad Magazine also did a parody, for their musical Star Wars tribute...

    "And soon I'll meet Darth Vader
    and soon after that I'll die.
    And I'm thinking on the whole
    that I'd prefer the River Kwai.

    Sung by Obi-wan Kenobi, of course.

    I loved Soap. Katherine had a great scene where she explained how as an older woman, you should not be on top because you wrinkles show compared to lying on her back where your face looks younger. As she demonstrated it with her deadpan seriousness. Absolutely hilarious.

    I think she had a bit part, maybe almost just as an extra, in the Gilliam film of Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas.

    With her passing, I think the only really well-known name left from Soap is Billy Crystal.

    I met Luke Perry at a home video event in Las Vegas. I had a nice chat with him, and our chat continued while we walked through the casino. At some point a lady ran up to him and said,

    “Has anyone told you that you look JUST LIKE Luke Perry from 90210?”

    “Yeah, I’ve gotten that a few times.”

    “Yeah, you look just like him, just like him!”

    Then she turned and walked away. I laughed and he turned to me and said, “it’s always nice to know you still look like yourself.”

    Sad to hear about Perry Mah. Like reporters, press photographers have been decimated by job cuts in recent years especially in the USA. I was amazed when I heard that Sports Illustrated laid off its entire staff of photographers. A lot of memorable images over the years from Perry.

    He took my front page photo Edmonton Sun, December 12th 1998, when I "rescued" the cab driver. Oops, methinks I blew my cover.

    SF Author Vonda McIntyre, 70

    McIntyre was born in Louisville, Kentucky on August 28, 1948, but her family settled in Seattle, Washington by the 1960s. She was an author and founder of the Clarion West Writer’s Workshop in 1971, which she began after attending the Clarion Writers Workshop in 1970. McIntyre was the third woman to receive a Hugo Award, and was a long-standing champion of feminist SFF. She won her first Nebula Award for the novelette “Of Mist, and Grass, and Sand”, and her Starfarers series had an incredible genesis: She made up the conceit on the spot while sitting on a panel at a convention, out of frustration at the general negativity she found around SF television. She convinced the entire audience of the panel that they had missed out on a great science fiction series, and then decided to write it.

    Farewell Georgette.

    Georgia Engel, Gentle-Voiced ‘Mary Tyler Moore’ Actress, Is Dead at 70

    Ms. Engel was twice nominated for an Emmy Award for her work on “Mary Tyler Moore,” which she joined in 1972, during the show’s third season.


    “It was only going to be one episode,” she told The Toronto Star in 2007, “and I was just supposed to have a few lines in a party scene, but they kept giving me more and more to do.”


    She had a high-pitched, innocent voice that, as one writer put it, “sounds like an angel has just sniffed some helium,” and she used it expertly to contrast with the blustery Baxter (played by Ted Knight) and the usually levelheaded Mary Richards, Ms. Moore’s character.

    "I think Conway's goal in life was to destroy Harvey," Burnett told the Television Academy Foundation.


    In one popular skit, Conway's portrayal of an inept dentist who accidentally injects himself with painkiller resulted in Korman, who was playing the patient, laughing so hard that he wet his pants, Burnett said.

    On his style:

    Legendary comic Tim Conway dead at 85


    Conway, a native of Ohio, said his Midwestern roots played well on "Burnett" and its more gentle, non-offensive comedy takes.

    “I think the Midwest is the heart of comedy in this country, and a little bit of the South, too,” he told the Wisconsin State Journal in 2005. “For some reason, we’re just more laid-back, more understanding. ... And Midwesterners have a kinder sense of humor.”
