happy beautiful ed and patricia

Ed Bradley and Patricia Blanchet

Haitian American blogger Alice Becker linked to my RIPS Ed Bradley post and points out that in 1993:

Bradley was not married then. Or at least not to his widow Patricia Blanchet, a Haitian-American filmmaker, whom he seems to have married in 2004. The Aspen Times has a great article and picture of the two.[full link]

A great article and picture indeed. It's a small Haitian-American world, but I don't know Blanchet. My kreole is too rusty to offer a proper condolence, so I'll just say my thoughts go out to her and her family.

You can find the Aspen Times article here.

hi ebog. thanks for the link. love that picture! one fact that remains to be checked is whether she is indeed a filmmaker. i met her briefly at an event years ago that was film-related and was introduced to her by a filmmaker. but she could be another type of media person. will look into it. :-)

oh, this is just for your account, no need to post it to the blog, but my last name is spelt bAcker, rather than the ever so tempting and sexy bEcker. :-)
