    Yes, Helen Thomas, she was a pioneer and the longest serving White Hosue reporter. She covered every president since Kennedy. She was (it is said) the person who convinced Kennedy not to attend the correspondants dinner unless women were allowed.

    She was tough and well respected for her long and storied career, right up until the whole "jews go home" incident.

    I was a bit confused when I saw this in the paper, because he looked different. I also thought he was on NYPD Blue instead of Law & Order. So I had to look up NYPD Blue to see that the person I was thinking of was Dennis Franz.

    I heard about that, and immediately thought what a sad thing to happen in such a frustrating manner, when she was trying to seek help. Of all the regulars on That 70s Show, she played the character that I felt was the most 1970s of all of 'em, she had the hair, the mannerisms, the selfishness, just a real piece of behavior work that wasn't merely tapping into her existing personality, but was a real performance that took skill. I'll never forget the episode where Eric accidentally walks in on his parents doing it, and Eric goes through the next few days in a haze of internalized horror, and when Laurie finally finds out she becomes comforting and sympathetic and tries to be helpful, and it was such a funny performance on her part.
