R.I.P.: Dixie Carter (1939-2010)
Dixie Carter, the classy lady who memorably played Julia Sugarbaker in several seasons of the long-running sitcom Designing Women -- and, more recently, graced the stage at Houston's Alley Theatre with her husband, Hal Holbrook, in a very amusing trifle titled Be My Baby. She also appeared -- fleetingly but affectingly -- opposite Mr. Holbrook last year in That Evening Sun. She'll be missed.
