Christian Brando has died; with the deaths of Bobby Fischer (Jan. 18) and Brad Renfro (Jan. 15), this is one of those bizarre "celebrity" deaths, and this is the third in two weeks.

All i could think when i read of Christian Brando's death was that this is what all those dreams that Dodie Brando had (her frustrations of being stuck in Omaha, Nebraska; her desire to get out; the alcoholism which gave form to her frustrations; her children's love for her, and their attempts to fulfill her dreams, Lisa by being an artist, Jocelyn and Marlon by being actors) have come to: this very sad end.

Of course, Dodie Brando never lived long enough to see any of her grandchildren.
