An icon is gone. Uncle Miltie is dead! Granted, he was 93, but no man ever made a dress so hilarious, and it seemed like he would go on forever. That's the trouble with movies and television--they make it seem like the players are forever frozen in youth, immortal in celluloid. And closer to my generation, Dudley Moore also died today. I will never forget watching him in 'Foul Play' as the weirdo with the fold-down bed, disco lights, and blow-up doll. Two comedians in one day seems a bit much. When we have high drama in the mideast 'peace' talks and another bomb blast in Israel, I think we need all the people who can make us laugh that we can get.
