Sister act: Actresses Lynn Redgrave, left, and Vanessa Redgrave arrive at the premiere of “Evening” on June 11, 2007, in New York.

The Redgrave-Richardson clan has suffered another major loss with the death of actress Lynn Redgrave, who died in her Manhattan home on Sunday night, only a month after her brother Corin’s death and a year after niece Natasha Richardson’s fatal accident on a Canadian ski slope.


Her publicist Rick Miramontez, speaking on behalf of her children, said Redgrave died Sunday night at her Manhattan apartment. In 2003, Redgrave had been treated for breast cancer.

Why can’t anyone just say this about Lynn Redgrave:

She gave us a lot of pleasure and entertainment over 5 decades.  She was my FAVORITE of the Redgraves, the most down-to-earth and most approachable of the clan. She wasn’t afraid to laugh at herself and slid into roles as easily and as naturally as if she was born into the parts, from Georgy Girl to House Calls to the hippy mom in The Jane Austen Bookclub.

May she rest in peace.

“I have come to believe there must be a God, and He or She is not good.”

Huh? What does God have to do with Lynn Redgrave dying of breast cancer? Who has fouled this beautiful planet and exposed every living creature to endless poisons? Who has created an environment in which 1 in 3 women and 1 in 2 men in the U.S. will get cancer?

Must human beings worship a fantastic version of themselves and call it God? From what I have observed, I would say the answer is yes. Blaming God is such a handy escape from our own responsibility. My all-time favorite is the execution of a first-century Jew, which has been labeled God’s sacrifice of his son for our salvation. Nice people, those who worship a God who tortures and executes his children, but worshiping a human sacrifice seems a good indication of most people’s spiritual development.

Look how healthy she looks in that photo, taken less than three years ago. The
cruelty of it. I have come to believe there must be a God, and He or She is not
