... And Some Loss, to Even Things Out

I've been thinking about aging, as you do, and thinking about the various Icons of my Youth who were likely to die within the next five years, cuz I'm morbid like that, and how their deaths would affect me, cuz I'm narcissistic like that ...

and today received the news that Marcia Wallace and Lou Reed, two people who were really pretty different but both felt like way too young and way too smart and way too integral to The World As I Know It to ever, ever die, have died.

People, it's true: getting older is brutal -- and not just in the ways you can anticipate.
