    I'd already seen one report on Twitter's Breaking News feed that the WashPost is reporting she has died, but I've not been able to locate anything other than a report on the web that she's gravely ill.

    "A Few Words on Breasts" ranks among the best personal essays I've ever read and reads like a particularly eloquent Care Bear outtake.

    Read a story on the only scene guys like in Sleepless in Seattle ... when Tom Hanks and the guy who played his bro-in-law start weeping over the Dirty Dozen. Was supposedly an ad-lib. The cameras kept rolling, the director loved it and left it in. Apparently Nora was not pleased.
