Stormy Weather

It is supposed to rain today. Maybe the world is mourning the woman who made it famous. Lena Horne died yesterday. My favorite obituary was David Thompson's at the Guardian. She was amazing and deserved a much bigger career than she had (Ava Gardner was dubbed in Show Boat!--which was completely and utterly a part Lena was born to play). In fact, Ava's and her dubber's version of Can't Help Lovin' Dat Man was based on Lena's version.
