Mad Housewife

Well, mad enough to marry Neil Young, at least. Hmmm, I don’t think I’ve seen any of her films, which is odd since she’s been in a lot of them.

Tony Randall, the comic actor best known for playing fastidious photographer Felix Unger on “The Odd Couple,” has died. He was 84.

Randall died in his sleep Monday night at NYU Medical Center of complications from a long illness, according to his publicity firm, Springer Associates.

Randall won an Emmy for playing Unger on the sitcom based on Neil Simon’s play and movie.

The Odd Couple is easily one of the top ten T.V. shows of all time and largely due to him. I treasure every moment of those shows. (If only Nick at Nite were on the cable system here.) He was a national treasure. People like him deserve the good fortune of dying in their sleep. R.I.P. Tony.

Rest in eternal peacefulness on the other side of paradise.

I shouldn’t be so gullible next time.

Oh well. A good hoax while it lasted.

That’s really funny anyway. I’m surprised you got fooled by it though. Wishful thinking, I guess.

Last widow of a Confederate civil-war veteran dies at 97.

MONTGOMERY, Ala. - Alberta Martin, the last widow of a Civil War veteran, died on Memorial Day, ending an unlikely ascent from sharecropper’s daughter to the belle of 21st century Confederate history buffs who paraded her across the South. She was 97.

Martin died at a nursing home in Enterprise of complications from a heart attack she suffered May 7, said her caretaker, Dr. Kenneth Chancey. She died nearly 140 years after the Civil War ended.

Her May-December marriage in the 1920s to Civil War veteran William Jasper Martin and her longevity made her a celebrated final link to the old Confederacy.

“She was a link to the past,” Chancey said Monday. “People would get emotional, holding her hand, crying and thinking about their family that suffered greatly in the past.”

The last widow of a Union veteran from the Civil War, Gertrude Janeway, died in January 2003 at her home in Tennessee. She was 93 and had married veteran John Janeway when she was 18.

Martin said her husband never talked much about the war, except the harsh times at Petersburg, Va.

“He’d say it was rough, how the trenches were full of water. They were so hungry in Virginia that during the time they were fighting, they had to grab food as they went along. They came across a potato patch and made up some mashed potatoes,” she said.

Martin’s older son, Harold Farrow of North Little Rock, Ark., died last June. Her younger son, Willie Martin, lives in Elba.

Alberta Martin is to be interred at New Ebenezer Baptist Church six miles west of Elba, in an 1860s-style ceremony following her funeral June 12.
