In Passing

Kurt Vonnegut died yesterday. He was 84. I've never read his books (I hate to admit it), but I've always planned to. I guess I should move them closer to the top of the list. A lot of his books are really science fiction, no matter what the publishers called them.

But there was another death, reported in today's NY Daily News, that of 81-year-old actor Roscoe Lee Browne, known primarily for his stage and TV work. He had the most amazing voice this side of James Earl Jones and brought a special brand of dignity to each role he played. I've missed seeing/hearing him on TV the last few years or so and now I know I won't get the chance again.
