Death: Hollywood journalist Marilyn Beck, 85, has died of lung cancer:

At their peak in the 1970s and ’80s, Ms. Beck’s syndicated columns reached 20 million readers in hundreds of newspapers, including The Daily News in New York. She was also a familiar presence on radio and television, hosting “Marilyn Beck’s Hollywood Outtakes” specials on NBC and long-running stints on the syndicated “PM Magazine” and on the E! Channel’s “Gossip Show.”

Let's hope we have the 12th Triple Crown winner this coming Saturday:

California Chrome won the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes, and on the first Saturday in June, he will try to become the 12th horse to sweep the Triple Crown and the first since Affirmed in 1978. Sherman knows that is a long time for the sport to wait for a savior.

“My horse is an extra special horse,” he said, matter-of-factly. “If it’s meant to be, he’ll win this race and he’ll be immortal.”

If successful, California Chrome will be the first California-bred to win it.

Handwriting is extremely important but yet another casualty of the batshit crazy "reform movement."
