I was just perusing Wikipedia on Jane Russell and learned she was married 3 times, of which 2 of those marriages lasted 25 years!  Incredible!  How many people can say that?!

Jane Russell

If you had eyes for something else than Jane Russell's ... face, you might have seen that Higashimori already posted that one. ;)

It's OK, it was interesting to read the Times obit for her, which I'd somehow missed.

 " Legendary jazz drummer Joe Morello dies at 82 " R.I.P Mr. Morello.

 By BRUCE SHIPKOWSKI, Associated Press

 http://yhoo.it/eGiUXk

 
Quote
TRENTON, N.J. – Legendary jazz drummer Joe Morello, whose virtuosity and command of odd time signatures made him an integral part of the Dave Brubeck Quartet on such classic recordings as "Take Five" and "Blue Rondo a la Turk," has died at age 82.

Family members said Morello died Saturday at his home in northern New Jersey. A cause of death was not immediately available.

Brubeck said the loss of his friend "came as a complete shock to me."

"Many people consider the rhythm section of (bassist) Eugene Wright and Joe Morello in my quartet as being one of the most consistent, swinging rhythm sections in jazz," Brubeck said in a statement e-mailed to The Associated Press. "Drummers worldwide remember Joe as one of the greatest drummers we have known."
