Oops! You're right. I saw that on the BBC website and didn't look at the date. I wondered why the NY Times didn't have anything about this.

Montserrat Caballé, Revered Spanish Prima Donna

She ranks very close to the top of the list of sopranos to whom I love to listen; I've got her right behind Maria Callas and Leontyne Price.

I hate his characters after Captain Marvel, but I've got to give him credit for having created them.

I'm sorry to hear that. frown

I've always enjoyed Harv's posts, and I'll miss them, but I'll particularly miss his sig - "Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities. ~Voltaire" - which was posted years before the election of #45 but has taken on new significance since that unhappy day, so in his memory, I've taken the liberty of appending my sig with his...preceded by "In Memory Of Harv".

If there's a consensus that it's presumptuous - I hope that's not the case, because I think that having posted it, Harv would appreciate its being perpetuated. - or if the bosses object, I'll delete it forthwith.

Regardless of other opinions, I thoroughly approve of the amendment to your signature and am moved by it. RIP, Harv.

Ditto.

Was Harv's passing an expected transition?

I don't know any details beyond what was posted in my link. We can only hope that his passing was peaceful and painless.

Wasn't that Fay Wray's niche?

More: Later filled by Diana Rigg.

Fay Wray was long before my time, but I was well past adolescence when I fell in love with Diana Rigg (a.k.a. Emma Peel). I mourned the day she left the show and Linda Thorsten (a.k.a. Tara King) was a thoroughly inadequate substitute for Emma Peel. My wife tolerated my infatuation with Emma/Diana on a look but too far away to touch basis.
