    Patty Andrews, last of the Andrews Sisters, dies at 94

    Not earth-shattering news, I know, but something of the last of an era for the Second World War.

    When I was little, World War II vets were in late middle age and there was a lot of nostalgia for wartime music and movies. I saw a lot of the Andrews Sisters and really loved their perky close harmony.

    I was just listening to them the other day. They were so fun and energetic. That Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy must be playing Taps right about now.
