Weekend Discussion Thread: A Riff on Your Tombstone

Alert reader Cornjob suggests:

How about “What riff would you like on your
tombstone?” My own would be “Well, that could have
gone better,” followed by “Stop being full of worms
you idiot”.

Oh, this is going to cost a fortune, but I picked this many years ago: “I’ve undergone a complex personal evolution wherein painful confusion has given way to what I like to think of as some degree of wisdom, culminating in my current Zarasthustrian sense of self. Is that it?”

Your pick?

Zienia Merton, RIP

Longtime MSTies will recall that Merton played Sandra Benes in the movie in episode K10- COSMIC PRINCESS. She was 72.

Hollywood.com has the story.

Thanks to Tim for the heads up.
