Sad.  Just 49.

Outliving your kids has got to be a nightmare.

Vern Bloom, 80, who played Dean Wormer's wife, Marion, in Animal House (1978). Tim Matheson paid tribute to her:

She was also in High Plains Drifter (1973) opposite Clint Eastwood.

He wasn't famous per se but his dad was.

Not sure why but I was never a fan.    I think it may be because she was a regular on the Ed Sullivan show.    My Grandmother used to make us watch Ed Sullivan when we visited her house.    All the older adults (Grandfather and sons) were in the dining room playing penny ante poker in a smoke cloud sippin' beer and Four Roses.

What's that?

Google sez:    It meant the tough (cynical) attitude towards emotions triggered by violence.    :shock:     Day-um

 The smoking and drinking description just brought the genre to mind. Find a George Pelecanos novel. The Big Blowdown or Right as Rain.  Pelecanos went on to write for The Wire and Treme.

:phew:    I was gonna quit postin'.   

EDIT:    Googled the author.    Might have to pick up one of his books.   Two questions:  1)  Are they set in DC neighborhoods?    2)  If so, can you recommend one?

Yes, they're set in DC. It's been so long since I've read them that I'd have a hard time recommending one. I'd start with the first of any series. Hang on. Let me look at my kindle history.
