Just end this goddamn year already.
Carrie Fisher, the actress who turned Princess Leia from STAR WARS into an immortal screen icon, died a few days after suffering a heart attack on a flight from London to L.A. She was just 60 years old.
Yet another gut punch in a year full of them. But this one feels like a lower blow, a real cheap shot. Taking the beloved and colorful Fisher at 60 is just cruel.
I’ll have more on this terrible loss in a later blog.
