  1. What is going on ?? A celebrity or two has practically died every day in the last 10 days ,, Mollie Sugden and Karl Malden past away today.. 7-1-09.. Hope it stops soon..

  2. Fayette was part of my favorite line-up of TTD. Her voice was just as strong and distinctive as Sheila's, yet they blended so harmoniously. TTD was second only to the Supremes when it came to girl group glamour. There is a treasure trove of TTD performances from this era on Youtube.

    RIP, sweet girl.
