In A World Where Nobody Lives Forever . . .

Miss Sallie Parker, who does a creditable impression of Walter Cronkite, among others, might be saddened to hear that one of leading lights of her vocation has signed off at the green young age of 68: Don LaFontaine, the Bert Parks of movie trailers, or "Trailer Parks," as we used to call him.

Then again, she might not. Miss Sallie Parker can be hard to read, at times.

The very day you posted that, I was telling a friend how my Aunt Ruth did a very creditable impression of her onetime announcer, John Facenda (Philadelphia radio circa 1939). Aunt Ruth went into the convent but John went on to even better things.
