And don't forget -- Carole's husbands, William Powell and Clark Gable, are in the finals of the silents/1930s bracket of the classic actors' tournament at the blog "All Good Things." As of this writing, sixth seed Powell has a 26-21 lead on top seed Gable. To vote, go to http://poohtiger-allgoodthings.blogspot.com/; voting ends at 9 p.m. (Eastern) tonight.
