Liz Taylor has finally died at 79. I don't mean that to sound as morbid as it does, but my god! Hasn't she been hanging on by a thread for a few years now?

And is it just me, or couldn't you have swore she was 130?

Either way, she was an acting and cultural icon (see Maggie's first words-The Simpsons) and she will be missed.

Here is her bio, courtesy of Wikipedia..."Liz Taylor dead at 79"

and, Merv Griffin is still dead.
