We were presumably not alone in feeling pangs of sadness yesterday as the news spread that beloved essayist, humorist, screenwriter, and director Nora Ephron had passed away. Among her many enduring legacies—When Harry Met Sally, anyone?; her book, I Feel Bad About My Neck: And Other Thoughts on Being a Woman—we were happy to glean one more Ephronism while reading her well-written obituary in the Times. Apparently, the journalist got blow-outs twice a week. “It’s cheaper by far than psychoanalysis and much more uplifting,” she believed. Words to live by. [NYT]
