Dixie Carter, rest in peace. (h/t – Instapundit)

Television and stage actress Dixie Carter died Saturday morning at the age of 70. Cause of death has not been reported at this time. Carter was best known for playing wisecracking Julia Sugarbaker for seven years on the sitcom Designing Women. She has also been on the series Family Law, Diff’rent Strokes, and Filthy Rich. In 2007 she was nominated for an Emmy for her guest turn on Desperate Housewives. Carter married Oscar-nominated actor Hal Holbrook in 1984. They have two daughters, Mary Dixie and Ginna.

STOP THE PRESSES! Obama Does Something Without Fawning Press In Tow

Okay, so far be it from me to criticize the president without his usually doting obsequious press-corps in tow. But for all the paparazi man-of-state cum cause celebre has carved out for himself, half a cheer to this guy for spending a few quiet hours with his wife and daughters, the two latter who likely are the only ones left in the nation with hero worship less than that of the White House press corps themselves.

Perhaps, a week past the holy time of Easter, we can give our First Father this one moment to himself to share with his brood.

Naturally, of course, those of us on the Right will be more prone to allow that to the man who, to us, doesn’t necessarily embody the salvation of mankind itself. To the Left, naturally, any moment away from the spotlight of their own desperate clinging to metaphysical greatness above their own selves will be tatamoun to a slap on the collective face.

All place idol-worship in the correct perspective, no?
