The actor who played the Dude's landlord in The Big Lebowski is dead at 75. This will never be on Jeopardy! I just wanted you to know.

Roger Angell, longtime editor and writer for the New Yorker, passes at 101. He was, IMHO, the best writer on baseball ever ("The Summer Game", e.g.), and he wrote two superb memoirs: "This Old Man" and "Let Me Finish". Highly recommended. Not too likely to show up on J! but he might, and the obit is very well done (I'm sure it's been in the can for a long time).

Angell was an artist with words, and his love for baseball was boundless.

Was he the one who wrote the annual Christmas poem in the New Yorker?
