    Sooo...Today...

    Someone died who didn't deserve their own thread...

    This person actually died in 2012, but seems worthy of mention. Jenn will like this one.

    Beate Sirota Gordon, the daughter of Russian Jewish parents who at 22 almost single-handedly wrote women’s rights into the Constitution of modern Japan, and then kept silent about it for decades, only to become a feminist heroine there in recent years, died on Sunday at her home in Manhattan. She was 89...

    A civilian attached to Gen. Douglas MacArthur’s army of occupation after World War II, Ms. Gordon was the last living member of the American team that wrote Japan’s postwar Constitution.

    Her work — drafting language that gave women a set of legal rights pertaining to marriage, divorce, property and inheritance that they had long been without in Japan’s feudal society — had an effect on their status that endures to this day.

    It was sad to hear that Ian McKeever passed away. Lightning is so darn dangerous.

    Richard Ben Cramer, a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter and the author of “What It Takes,” a prodigious account of the 1988 presidential election that has been widely hailed as among the finest books about American politics ever written, died on Monday night in Baltimore. He was 62.
    http://www.nytimes.com/2013/01/08/us...itics.html?hpw

    Around these parts, he'd be best known for Joe DiMaggio: The Hero's Life, an exemplary biography (if not exactly gentle on its subject). I haven't read What It Takes, but it's hailed as one of the best American political books ever.

    I didn't realize he was still alive up until now. He outlived his TV daughter and one of his TV sons. Only Todd (Willis) Bridges is still alive.

    I don't know if I would have taken Todd Bridges in the pool. Most likely, I would have put my money on Conrad Bain.

    He also had a small part in the excellent Postcards From the Edge.

    It was closed due to political discussions, right around the end of the year. So when I suggested starting a new obits thread for celebrities who don't deserve their own thread, someone challenged me to start it as "Sooo...Today..."

    Unsurprisingly.

    OK, not today, but last week:

    She was 22, a sheltered, dark-haired Bronx beauty said to look like Elizabeth Taylor.

    He was a decade older, a suave lawyer who courted her with flowers, rides in his powder-blue Cadillac and trips to glittering Manhattan nightclubs. He was married, though not to her.

    Before long, tiring of his unfulfilled promises to divorce his wife, she ended their affair. He hired three men, who threw lye in her face, blinding her, and went to prison for more than a decade.

    Afterward, she married him.

    Linda Riss Pugach, whose blinding by her lover, Burton N. Pugach, in 1959 became a news media sensation, and whose marriage to Mr. Pugach in 1974 became an equally sensational sequel, died at Forest Hills Hospital in Queens on Tuesday at 75.
