RIP Charles Durning. Also Jack Klugman, Gerry Anderson and Richard Rodney Bennett. Naturally I’m a big admirer of Durning, and mean no disrespect with the above flippant imagery.
What is it with the reliable Christmas death toll? Can we suppose that even in your 80s and 90s, Christmas stirs excitement in your heart, and thus brings about fatal cardiac infarction? Or is it just all the bloody stress? Right now, I’d plump for the latter.
