Paule Marshall, an exuberant and sharpened storyteller who in books such as “Daughters” and “Brown Girl, Brownstones” drew upon classic and vernacular literature and her mother’s kitchen conversations to narrate the divides between blacks and whites, men and women, and modern and traditional cultures, has died at age 90.

Marshall died Monday in Richmond, Va., her son Evan said. She had been suffering from dementia in recent years.

Damn. I don't own either film, haven't even seen Pink Panther. Sucks that a guy responsible for such an impact on my childhood (particularly Roger Rabbit) is now gone.

Not to speak for BDD (though I'm guessing I won't be far off), but she was literally a traitor to her country, consorting with the enemy and doing propaganda for them while her fellow countrymen were dying at their hands. She did something that not long before would've had her imprisoned.

Space Cop is exactly right. Jane Fonda is a traitorous piece of garbage.

"Yesterday, while attempting to beat her own land speed record, the 52,000 horsepower jet-powered car driven by racer, fabricator, and television personality Jessi Combs crashed in the Alvord Desert in Oregon, killing her, as local news reports. Combs was 36 years old and held the title of “fastest woman on four wheels” after breaking 398 mph in that same North American Eagle Supersonic Speed Challenger in 2013."

Terrible news. My condolences go out to her and her family.
