    Nora Ephron; author, screenwriter, director made Hollywood blockbusters - Obituaries - The Boston Globe

    Brilliant, brilliant woman.

    Sadly, her friend Liz Smith released her obituary before she'd actually passed. That's kinda bittersweet funny.

    Did she leave her estate to the Obama campaign?

    Okay, now that the "asshole moment" has been taken care of...

    She really did have a way with words. Who can ever forget the orasm scene in When Harry Met Sally?

    Her talent will be missed.

    Sympathies to her family and friends (as if any of them will be reading this).

    I never knew (and still don't) her political leanings. She was a great wit, and I will always mourn the loss of one of those - ... and she died far too young (in this day and age). Needlessly, to boot.

    I hate disease.

    Did you read the story behind the orgasm scene? "Not me, they don't!" Um, yeah. They do.

    I feel a loss on two levels. On one level I am grateful for the smile she put on my face as I watched one of her movies or read her books. On a more selfish level I regret that I won't have any new works to enjoy in the future.
