    The older generation knows her for being Bob Newhart's receptionist. The younger crowd knew her better as Bart's teacher, Edna Krabappel.

    I remember her from "The Bob Newhart Show" (I'm from the MUCH older generation!), and although her career was limited to only a few roles, she did them well and added enjoyment to the shows on which she appeared.

    And if you're sitting where I am sitting...70 is far too young...

    Yes, agreed, 70 (the old 'three score and ten') is far too young to die, these days. And 'The Simpsons' is a clever, classy, highly intelligent, witty, well-written show.......
