business news in context, analysis with attitude

We neglected earlier this week to note the passing last weekend of the outstanding character actor Fritz Weaver, who did Shakespeare, Eugene O'Neill, Arthur Miller and Lanford Wilson plays on Broadway ... played a Jewish doctor killed by Nazis in the TV miniseries "Holocaust" ... and did character roles in series ranging from "Mission: Impossible" to "Mannix" and "The Twilight Zone," and in films ranging from Fail Safe to The Big Fix to The Day of the Dolphin. He was 90.
