I thoroughly enjoyed both Closely Watched Trains and I Served the King of England. I've been meaning to catch more of his movies, but just never got around to it.

Menzel's great "Larks on a String" is still free with Amazon Prime, as far as I know....less than 300 checks, still.

And (IMO) it's great. Capricious Summer (Rozmarné léto) is another goodie.

Yeah, I loved Capricious Summer too. Though I don't think it's on Amazon.

I am upset about that as I just saw the 2nd episode of the remake of All Creatures Great and Small in which she played the owner of Tricky woo. Also great in the Avengers and others.

Terry Goodkind, American writer, 72. Best known for The Sword of Truth, one of those mega-mega fantasy series that have dominated the field for the past 40+ years. His was pretty early out of the gate in what I would call the "second wave" which kicked off with Robert Jordan's equally massive Wheel of Time, starting in 1990. I read the first in Goodkind's series, Wizard's First Rule, probably within a couple of years after it was first published in 1994 - my uncle had the Science Fiction Book Club edition and I borrowed it when I went to the family reunion one of those 90s summers. Read the next 2-3 books also because I really hate giving up on stuff, but only the first one had ANY merit, and that mostly due to a certain novelty value - it's a heavily Ayn Rand-influenced Objectivist series, which was probably something new in mainstream fantasy and certainly new to me. I kind of love-hated that first book but it turned to pretty much just hate over the next couple and I stopped, thankfully. I actually credit this series - and reading about half of the first of Jordan's books - with killing my interesting in these 10,000+ page "epics". Sorry GRRM, your books came along too late, I'm already over it all.

There was a TV adaptation, I suppose of the first couple of Goodkind's books, called "Legend of the Seeker" about a decade ago which ran for a couple of years - haven't seen it, probably shouldn't bother.

Ruth Bader Ginsberg, 87.

I don't think I need to tell anybody how terrible this is for America - and really for the whole world, ultimately - at this moment.

Oh, it's fine because Mitch McConnell is so ethically against picking SCOTUS justices during an election year and will take a firm stance against rushing someone into the position.

Ah, wait....never mind.
