i thought she was in the Star Trek episode, "Where No Man Has Gone Before", and she was.

More of us might remember Hot Lips Houlihan.

William Hurt, 71
William Hurt, who became a top leading man in the 1980s, winning an Oscar for 1985’s “Kiss of the Spider Woman” and starring in “The Big Chill” and “Body Heat,” died Sunday of natural causes. He was 71. Hurt’s death was confirmed to Variety by his friend, Gerry Byrne.

His son Will said in a statement, “It is with great sadness that the Hurt family mourns the passing of William Hurt, beloved father and Oscar winning actor, on March 13, 2022, one week before his 72nd birthday. He died peacefully, among family, of natural causes.”

Hurt was nominated for four Oscars over the course of his long career, scoring two best actor nominations for “Broadcast News” and “Children of a Lesser God” and a supporting actor nod for less than 10 minutes of screen time in “A History of Violence.” He was one of the most heralded performers of the 1980s, becoming something of a cerebral sex symbol and a reluctant, albeit bankable, movie star. Hurt later transitioned into character roles in the 1990s and successfully alternated between big screen projects and television, scoring Emmy nominations for his work as a whistleblower in “Damages” and his portrayal of Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson in “Too Big to Fail.”

Re: Madeleine Albright, first female secretary of state, dies at 84
NPR's "Fresh Air" is broadcasting (2) Madeleine Albright interviews, Originally broadcast in 2003 and 2018.

Audio and transcript available at Remembering Madeleine Albright, the first woman to serve as secretary of state

Also the original 2018 version at Madeleine Albright Warns: Don't Let Fascism Go 'Unnoticed Until It's Too Late'

The original 2003 version is probably also available somewhere, but I don't have a link at hand.

Re: Gilbert Gottfried 67
His wiki page was hilarious today. Earlier it had said he was eaten by an alligator, and the later it said he had died of ass cancer. Gilbert would have loved it. He was a firm believer that tragedy and comedy are close relatives.

What can be asserted without evidence can also be dismissed without evidence. -Christopher Hitchens

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?

Orrin Hatch . 88
Orin hatch was the longest service Republican in the Senate, and he retired before the strongly partisan junk that goes on today. I wish more congress people followed his lead, rather than Mitch McConnell

Re: Orrin Hatch . 88
I disagree with Hatch about almost everything. But he was an honorable man. We cannot say that about most of the current Republicans.

He was not one of my favorites. He was a big carbon asset bought and paid for.

I opposed everything he stood for and would not have welcomed his company.

Re: Orrin Hatch . 88
About the only really good things about Orrin Hatch was that he did support child welfare laws and was not as uncouth as so many Republicans today.
