The next morning, I'm pleased to learn that Leslie Nielsen didn't die, tragically or otherwise, overnight. This is a huge relief, because I cannot say that Milton Berle or Billy Wilder were so lucky.

In both of their cases, they died the day after I'd wondered, aloud, if they were still living. "Is Uncle Miltie still alive?" Yes, the day I asked. But the next? Nope. Same with poor Billy Wilder.

As soon as I thought I'd cursed Mr. Nielsen the night before, I wanted to call and warn him to be careful. Now I see I worried for nothing.
