  1. Actress Patty Duke (Astin) died early this morning; she was 69.   I believe she was best known for the film "The Miracle Worker" playing the role of Helen Keller.   I always have been fond of her performance in Truman Capote's "A Christmas Memory", a favorite short story of mine -- it's shown every Christmas.  She also was a mental health advocate for many years.  It seems like lately we are losing more well-known people at relatively younger ages.  May she rest in peace.
  2. Harper Lee, author of "To Kill a Mockingbird" died today; she was 89.   I loved this book and the movie with Gregory Peck even more.   The impact of her masterpiece still ripples in the waters of culture and humanity to this day. Rest in Peace, Miss Lee.
  3. Paul Kantner, founding member and guitarist of Jefferson Airplane died Thursday, January 28th at age 74.   All I can say is that January has been a rough month.
