Ms. Horne has passed away. Now Fred can fawn over her in heaven.
When I was surfing the cable channels last night, I noticed that TV Land was showing the episode of Sanford & Son with Lena Horne back to back with an episode of the Cosby Show which also featured Lena. Now at least I know why! I didn't see any mention that Ms. Horne had passed away during the commercial breaks, but that doesn't mean there wasn't some sort of a tribute. I'd guess that TV Land will be repeating the episodes sometime during this week.
