retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Patty Duke, who got a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her portrayal of Hellen Keller in The Miracle Worker, and then went on to play twins in a popular and eponymous sixties sitcom, passed away yesterday from complications from a ruptured intestine. She was 69, and had gone on to a respected career as an adult actress, president of the Screen Actors Guild, and a mental health advocate (which was fueled by her personal struggles with bipolar disorder).
