Three deaths in a row over the past few days. From John McCrarey, I learned of the deaths of 80s music icons Ric Ocasek (lead singer of The Cars) and Eddie Money (of "Take Me Home Tonight" fame). From other sources, I learned of the death of news anchor/reporter/analyst Cokie Roberts. Ocasek and Roberts were 75; Money died at age 70.

80s musicians—and Cokie Roberts, too, for that matter—are fixed and eternally young in my memory. It was more shocking to hear that Cokie Roberts was 75 than to learn that she had just died of complications from breast cancer. Time stops for no one.
