Paule Marshall, an exuberant and sharpened storyteller who in books such as “Daughters” and “Brown Girl, Brownstones” drew upon classic and vernacular literature and her mother’s kitchen conversations to narrate the divides between blacks and whites, men and women, and modern and traditional cultures, has died at age 90.

Marshall died Monday in Richmond, Va., her son Evan said. She had been suffering from dementia in recent years.

The acclaimed animator Richard Williams, who worked on hit films including Roger Rabbit and The Pink Panther, has died.
Damn. I don't own either film, haven't even seen Pink Panther. Sucks that a guy responsible for such an impact on my childhood (particularly Roger Rabbit) is now gone.

Conway's Pulitzer-nominated "Cracking The Ice" series of articles on Alan Eagleson and the NHLPA was key to Eagleson's downfall and eventual imprisonment.

Not to speak for BDD (though I'm guessing I won't be far off), but she was literally a traitor to her country, consorting with the enemy and doing propaganda for them while her fellow countrymen were dying at their hands. She did something that not long before would've had her imprisoned.

Space Cop is exactly right. Jane Fonda is a traitorous piece of garbage.
