The Gilmore family lost its patriarch today.
Edward Herrmann, who portrayed Richard Gilmore during The Gilmore Girls’ seven-year run on the CW, died today in Los Angeles after battling brain cancer.
I first remember seeing Herrmann in a small role in the original Great Gatsby film. Even then, his distinctive voice and upper-crust persona were in evidence.
Numerous obituaries list his Tony and Emmy award-winning work, but I’ll always think of him as Richard Gilmore, the rich grandpa who we’d love to have in our corner.
Logan was such a goob…am I right?

I’m thinking about Gary David Goldberg today.
He died Sunday morning after a long battle with brain cancer.
Of course, when I think of Goldberg, the image at left doesn’t come to mind.
His shows do.
Family Ties. Spin City. Michael J. Fox comedies that Goldberg brought to life.
And as much as I loved those sitcoms, I particularly loved the way they signed off.
We even named one of our dogs Ubu.
(He didn’t have the longevity of Goldberg’s career, but he was awfully cute.)
