Sad news with which to begin Christmas in Virginia: veteran stage and screen actor Jack Klugman, a huge fixture from my childhood ("The Odd Couple," "Quincy, M.E."), is dead at the age of 90. I still remember the Yoplait commercial he did in heavily accented French. (I was a little tike at the time, and had no idea how heavy his accent was.)

RIP, Mr. Klugman.

CHRISTMAS UPDATE: Character-actor Charles Durning has died at 89. I remember him best for his role as the suicidal-then-angelic Waring Hudsucker in "The Hudsucker Proxy."

These things always come in threes: Mourn also Gerry Anderson, puppeteer genius who gave us "Supercar," "Fireball XL-5," and "Thunderbirds" (the latter being one of the inspirations for "Team America: World Police.")
