RIP Mary Tyler Moore 1936-2017


Carrie Fisher

carrieDon’t remember Star Wars coming out but certainly remember Empire strikes back. Saw that 5-6 times in the summer of 80. Not that many years older either and it’s the youngest that goes first. A sad goodbye to a courageous princess.  RIP Carrie Fisher 1956-2016.

George Michael

Gwen Ifill

images-duckduckgo-comShocked and deeply sadden by her passing. Long time viewer of Washington week and it shall be hard watching this week’s show. She will be deeply missed by many. My deepest condolences to her family, friends, and all her co-workers.

Gwen Ifill 1955 – 2016

The regular episode and the extra both devoted to remembering the life and career of Mrs. Ifill. Obviously hard for the panellists to get through and not easy to watch with clear eyes. Downloaded both video podcasts and burned to DVD. A wonderful lady, a principled journalist, and a presence in the lives of all regular viewers of Washington Week that will be greatly missed. Tuesday November 22.
