This seems to be the week for saying goodbye to influencers with heavy ties to Southern California.
In addition to Sidney Harman, Newsweek's latest owner, two other Southern California legends have passed away.
Eater LA.com reports, via the Hollywood Reporter, that Giorgio Baldi, chef and owner of Il Ristorante di Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica, passed away earlier this week, supposedly while on vacation in Mexico.
Meanwhile, teenagers and women of a certain age who used to be teen agers sighed in despair to learn that Teen Beat founder and publisher, Charles Laufer, passed away last week in Northridge.
So long, fellas.
