I was watching Hitchcock's Rebecca last night, and as I sometimes do, I looked up the actors I wasn't familiar with afterwards, to see if there was any interesting information about them. I discovered that Jean Fontaine, the female lead, was Olivia de Havilland's sister! Jean died at 96, which means that she and Olivia averaged 100. Pretty good going!

Susan Ellison, the widow of Harlan Ellison, died on August 1, 2020 at the much-too-young age of 60. I briefly meet them only once, at a book show where Harlan was signing. Susan Ellison was extremely nice; Harlan Ellison was...well, somewhat prickly. However, the affection that they had for each other was quite apparent. Attached below is a link to the Harlan Ellison Books website, announcing Mrs. Ellison's passing and re-printing a touching story her husband wrote about her called "Susan":

Wow.
I started to watch "Dreams With Sharp Teeth" thinking, "Oh, I might not get through more than a few minutes. He was such a sexist axhole."

I watched the whole thing!

While vehemently against his sexism and grabbing any other person at any age without consent, I didn't know I was so much like him in other ways.

I shout at people too, to hang up and drive, or watch where they're going, and when a grocery store employee tells me I could use self-checkout, I also shout, "Do you work for free? Do you get a paycheck? Do you think I'll do a cashier's work for free? You gotta pay me half hour cashiers' wages, up front!"
