Movie star Jill Clayburgh dies at 66
Washington Post Staff Writer  

Jill Clayburgh, 66, a veteran movie, stage and television performer who described herself as shy but was known for portraying the strengths as well as the vulnerabilities of modern women in a way that won her a large and loyal following, died Friday at her home in Lakeville, Conn.
Her husband, playwright David Rabe, told the Associated Press that she had suffered for 21 years from chronic lymphocytic leukemia.
Adept at demonstrating both intelligence and emotional texture, she was regarded as one of the first film figures to bring depth and subtlety to roles that reflected the sensibilities and attitudes of the growing women's movement................

Jill Clayburgh Dies at 66; Starred in Feminist Roles

Jill Clayburgh, an Oscar-nominated actress known for portraying strong, independent women, died on Friday at her home in Lakeville, Conn. She was 66.
The cause was chronic leukemia, with which she had lived for 21 years, her husband, the playwright David Rabe, said.
Ms. Clayburgh, who began her career in films and on Broadway in the late 1960s, was among the first generation of young actresses — including Ellen Burstyn, Carrie Snodgress and Marsha Mason — who regularly portrayed characters sprung from the new feminist ethos: smart, capable and gritty, sometimes neurotic, but no less glamorous for all that............

i voted

and i voted at morley school. i voted at 6 am. one used to vote in the front of the school in the auditorium. now one has to vote in the BACK of the school in the gym. i parked on the gym side, but the gates weren't open yet so i had to drive around to the front  side and walk around to the gym side. it was PITCH BLACK. no lights on the school grounds and NO lights on IN the school (at the front). there was a rape VERY near that school a few days ago. someone wasn't thinking. fine, it will be daylight soon, but as i type this, it's STILL pitch out. whoever is in charge, the police, the school, the town hall, the registrar of voters, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE don't let this happen again next year. 

1) make sure the gate is open at the REAR of the school
2) make sure LIGHTS are on, on the grounds
3) make sure LIGHTS ARE ON IN the front of the school.

it will be dark out early this evening and people will still be voting. can you do something prior to tonight?

UNFAIR my big fat arse. stfu vince AND linda

<a href="">Under pressure from feds, WWE cancels poll-day giveaway

It's not often that Vince McMahon calls someone a bully.
But the World Wrestling Entertainment chief executive, who is married to Republican Senate candidate Linda McMahon, is referring to the Justice Department in those terms.
McMahon pulled the plug Monday on a planned Election Day giveaway of wrestling merchandise at select polling locations across Connecticut, citing pressure from the Justice Department, whom he accused of abusing its power............
