An item in last Wednesday's Morning Buzz out of the paid obits in the Times mentioned the passing of Marie Dey, who was 107 and worked at Douglas Aircraft during World War II (and later became, apparently, quite the slot machine player in Laughlin.) She left 53 grandchildren. KPCC's Hank Rosenfeld went out to the visitation, met the family, and put together a nice story that ran last week on "All Things Considered" and on this weekend's Off-Ramp.
Add Off-Ramp: The show also visited with Los Angeles lawyer Bela Lugosi Jr., who has a website about his famous Dracula-playing dad. "Like most boys, I wanted to blend in, but with a name like Bela Lugosi, Jr., that was not likely," he writes.
