National Velveeta: Liz Taylor still not dead

Occasionally, local news is worth a moment of your time. We said occasionally. To wit, a recent ABC 7 report here in L.A. to counter the surfeit of overseas rumors: velveeta.jpg

Quoting “inside sources,” national and international tabloid newspapers have gone with the story that Elizabeth Taylor is near death. That information has now been picked up and re-worded by various publications – mostly on-line sites. According to her publicist Elizabeth Taylor is not near death: Dick Guttman says that he can refute every allegation in these published reports. In fact, he says they didn’t get anything right.

This is actually pretty funny, because I’d thought Dick Guttman was dead. Dick’s so old, he was nearing retirement around the time “National Velvet” came out.

You gotta love the guy – still at it.
