Pancreatic cancer and leukemia can take you extremely quickly too. Once worked with a guy who seemed completely fine, went in for some minor issues, got a diagnosis of leukemia and was dead just a week or two later.

Yep, pancreatic cancer can take a woman who survived for 20 years after a breast cancer diagnosis. Thanks for the reminder.

Vicki Sue Robinson, a singer that was truly "Unsung." She should have been much more popular than she really every was.

Comedian Andy Kaufman 'faked his death', brother claims

Quote:

Cult comedy star Andy Kaufman faked his own death
in 1984 and is still alive, his brother has claimed.

Attachment 46019

Kaufman, best known for playing the incompetent Latka Gravas on
the 1970s sitcom Taxi, officially died from lung cancer in 1984.
But, appearing at an award show named in Andy's honour, Michael Kaufman
said he received a letter from his brother, confirming he was alive, in 1999.

He then introduced a woman who claimed to be Andy's 24-year-old daughter.
Her age would mean she was born five years after his death.

"He just wanted to be a stay-at-home dad, that's why he wanted to leave the showbiz,"
she explained at the New York event.

Oh wow. One of my college lit professors was a freak for Doris Lessing. Yeah, she's good. RIP.

I know I have read at least one of her books. At least I really think I have. I hope so.

Will try to remember when I'm not supposed to be getting ready to go out (yes, it only happens a few times a year) and dallying here instead to heighton the tension.
