Mort Drucker and Phyllis Lyon, RIP -- April 13, 2020

Mad Magazine, December 1972

Mad Magazine's Mort Drucker has died.  It was not because of COVID-19.  When I read Mad, his film and television parodies were my favorite feature.  I could tell which actresses he liked.

Activist Phyllis Lyon also died (not of COVID-19).  I remember when she married her partner
Del Martin at City Hall when Gavin Newsom made same-sex marriage legal.  They were together for 56 years.
