Madeline Kahn: Progress Report 6

Though this is not really a report on my progress in writing her authorized biography, I note that today marks Madeline Kahn’s 67th birthday. How young she would have been, if she were still among us! It’s a reminder that she managed to create an admirable body of work in a relatively short time, and to make a lasting impression on us.

Please join me in celebrating her memory today — perhaps in a chorus of “Ah! Sweet Mystery of Life.”
And a reminder: if you’d like to help in the fight against ovarian cancer — the disease that cut short the sweet mystery of Madeline’s life — you can make a donation to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund. Thanks.
