Mrs. Krabappel has died

Okay, the actual teacher from The Simpsons didn't die, but Marcia Wallace, who voiced Edna Krabappel's delightfully burned-out persona, passed away yesterday (CNN, Entertainment Weekly).

She was 70, and had also starred on the Bob Newhart Show and Murphy Brown as Carol Kester.

Virtually every death is cause for sadness. But the ones that remove a broadly shared talent from the world seem to sting just a little more. Sadness.
