Frank McCourt Dead at 78, Other Frank McCourt Still Alive

1226561.jpgOver the weekend the author of Angela’s Ashes, Frank McCourt passed away in New York at 78 years old, according to the Associated Press.

It’s a huge loss. Very sad. He started his literary career late in life and this relatively early death feels too soon.

However, Frank McCourt the owner of the Dodgers and LA Marathon is still alive. We heard a rumor he’s training to actually run a marathon.

It must have been awkward when he showed up at the office this morning.
