I mentioned on a friend's Facebook page that Julia Sugarbaker, the character played by Dixie Carter in 'Designing Women', was one of the few TV characters that could promote a cause with an impassioned speech within the show and still never lose sight of who she was as the character. Julia Sugarbaker was never just the conduit for the script-writer in that sense. James Spader as Alan Shore on 'Boston Legal' and most of the cast of 'The West Wing' fell into that same category.

Dixie Carter passed away yesterday at the age of 70. She will be missed in Toobworld, and we could have used Julia Sugarbaker today in the real world.....

Goodnight and may God bless.
