Yeah, so you know Karen Black? Easy Rider? Played a hooker chick who drops acid with the boys in New Orleans and hangs out in a graveyard? Cross-eyed, needed to be bitch-slapped, Daisy Buchanan in the first Great Gatsby? Screaming stewardess forced to fly a plane in Airport 1975? Wife who becomes the old woman who knocks her husband out of second story window where he plummets to his death landing face first through the windshield of a "family-truckster" style station wagon in Burnt Offerings?
Yeah, well she died today; ampullary cancer, 74 years old.
I don't know what it is about celebrities dying that compels me to write. Death is always out there, hovering, waiting for us. The one experience we will all share and from which there is no escape."We worry so much sometimes it feels like all we do. But in the end it just gets washed away." Carmela Soprano.
