RIP Chad.

I will admit to having a real crush on him in the 1970s.   :-[

Gore Vidal, the elegant, acerbic all-around man of letters who presided with a certain relish over what he declared to be the end of American civilization, died on Tuesday at his home in the Hollywood Hills section of Los Angeles, where he moved in 2003, after years of living in Ravello, Italy. He was 86.

Geoffrey Hughes who stared in Coronation Street, Heartbeat, Keeping Up Appearances and many other UK TV dramas and comedies has died aged 68.

He often played the loveable rouge.  Onslow in Keeping Up Appearances was one of his best.

Considering how male dominated japanese movies seem to be (from an outsiders viewpiont), it's amazing that she managed to stay such a strong and imposing figure and had such an impressive career.
Truly a talented actress

I was also saddened to read Robert Hughes had died. 
He was an art critic who wrote in many papers and magazines. He also wrote the best selling book The Fatal Shore.
Born in Australia Robert finally moved to New York.
RIP Robert.
