I See a Red Door and Want to Paint It Black Slash A Moment of Silence

Surely you watch Downton Abbey?  If you are behind, avert your glance.  On the other hand, if you watched the most recent episode you saw Lady Sybil die in childbirth.

A moment of silence, please ...

Thank you.

Maggie Smith had a nice line:

“When tragedy strikes, we try to find somebody to blame. And in the absence of a suitable candidate, we usually blame ourselves. You are not to blame. Nobody is to blame. Our darling Sybil has died during childbirth, like too many women before her. And all we can do now is cherish her memory and her child.”

Talk amongst yourselves.  I'm verklempt.
