News and So On

Obituary: Actress Elaine Stritch, 89, has died of natural causes.

Although Stritch appeared in movies and on television, garnering three Emmys and finding new fans as Alec Baldwin's unforgiving mother on "30 Rock," she was best known for her stage work, particularly in her candid one-woman memoir, "Elaine Stritch: At Liberty," and in the Stephen Sondheim musical "Company."

A tart-tongued monument to New York show business endurance, Stritch worked well into her late 80s, most recently as Madame Armfeldt in a revival of Sondheim's musical "A Little Night Music." She replaced Angela Lansbury in 2010 to critical acclaim.

What in the hell is going on with Malaysia Airlines? This is just too terrible for words.

This time, though, we KNOW what happened to the plane and all of the innocent passengers on board.

Now I suppose the conspiracy theorists will be out in full force saying the same thing happened with the still-missing Flight 370.

I wouldn't be surprised if that plane is never found.
