    The first acknowledgement of Jed Allan's death this evening appeared on the website Michael Fairman TV. Fairman is a podcaster, an authority on daytime dramas and a contributor to many television programs -- but he says Allan was on Days Of Our Lives "from 1071 to 1985." That's a span of 915 years! I hope Fairman corrects the error. Allan was also a regular on Love Of Life, The Secret Storm, Santa Barbara, Port Charles and General Hospital and played a forest ranger on 26 episodes of Lassie.

    Singer/guitarist Jonathan Richman led four different groups in the 1970s-80s. Each group was called The Modern Lovers. The first incarnation, 1970-74, included bassist Ernie Brooks, drummer David Robinson (who would later join The Cars) and keyboardist Jerry Harrison (who would later join Talking Heads). Asa Brebner was a member in 1978-79 and from 1985 to 1988. He was also a member of The Chartbusters and released three solo albums between 1996 and 2001.

    In a five-decade career, Hammer produced 75 films dealing with women's issues, lesbian relationships and coping with aging and family. She died today of avarian cancer -- and ARTnews magazine felt it necessary to identify her as "queer."
