Goodbye, Julia


Very sad news this weekend...

Dixie Carter, who was already a Broadway and television veteran when she found perhaps her perfect part as Julia Sugarbaker, the wiser and wittier half of a pair of Southern sisters who ran an Atlanta interior decorating firm in "Designing Women," has died, her publicist said Sunday. Carter died Saturday in Houston of complications of endometrial cancer.

"Designing Women" is one of my all-time favorite sitcoms and Dixie Carter's rapier-sharp delivery was one of the reasons why. Although each of the characters on that show was funny in their own way, no one could dive into a speech and drive their message home like Dixie.

This is the perfect example of what I mean....

She will be missed.
