The Beetle, 81, is no more

The last Volkswagen Beetle rolled off an assembly line into eternity in Puebla, Mexico this week.

There was no shortage of angst on the factory floor and Twitter farewells on July 11 as admirers turned out to see the Beetle off. “While its time has come, the role it has played in the evolution of our brand will be forever cherished.” said Scott Keogh, president and CEO, Volkswagen Group of America, calling the car a “round peg” in the square hole of the automotive industry. “It’s impossible to imagine where Volkswagen would be without the Beetle.”

Now that it’s in the great junkyard in the sky, it’s time to pay respects to the Beetle’s legacy.

Charles Levin, Hollywood actor, found dead

Charles Levin appears in "Seinfeld."

(CNN) Authorities in Oregon believe they have found the remains of Charles Levin, an actor who appeared in television series like "Seinfeld" and "LA Law." He was 70 years old, according to IMDb.

Levin was in the process of moving when he went missing last week, CNN affiliate KTVL reported. Levin's son in Los Angeles notified authorities of his disappearance last Monday.

Authorities searched for Levin for the past week, police in Grants Pass, located about 200 miles south of Salem, said Sunday.

On Friday, an emergency cell phone ping led authorities to search a remote area northeast of Selma, the Grants Pass Department of Public Safety said. But there was no sign of Levin.

A resident found Levin's car on Saturday on a remote, almost impassible road. The disabled vehicle was off the roadway, police said.

Levin's pug, Boo Bear, was found in the vehicle. Levin's body was located near the car, police said.

"Based on the circumstances, there is a high probability that the remains are those of Charles Levin," police said.

The medical examiner will make the final identification of the remains, police said.

Levin appeared in one episode of "Seinfeld," in 1993, according to his IMDb page.

He also appeared on shows such as "Alice," "NYPD Blue," and "Hill Street Blues," according to IMDb.

Levin also had roles in films, such as "The Golden Child."

Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, Who Led Court’s Liberal Wing, Dies at 99

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/07/16/us/j ... -dead.html

When he retired in 2010 at the age of 90, Justice Stevens was the second-oldest and the second-longest-serving justice ever to sit on the court.

One former law clerk, Christopher L. Eisgruber, described in a 1993 essay an incident at a party for new clerks: Before Justice Stevens arrived, an older male justice had instructed one of the few female clerks present to serve coffee. When Justice Stevens entered, he quickly grasped the situation, walked up to the young woman and said: “Thank you for taking your turn with the coffee. I think it’s my turn now.” He took over the job.
