    It seems like every other day now some actor from tv/movies of my youth shows up on yahoo trends as recently deceased. Of course its always sad, but most of the time when I see these my reaction is disbelief that these people were actually still alive just a week or so before. I mean Edith Bunker? I thought she wasn't long for the grave back when I watched the show as a kid in the 70's. RIP Edith.

    I will miss her.

    The show All in the Family is truly an historic television series.

    'Reminds me of one of my favorite poems:

    I never dared to be radical when young,
    For fear it would make me conservative when old.

    She did have an irritating voice. :-(
