here's to you, Mrs. Robinson ...

Yesterday (June 7):
Oscar, Emmy and Tony Award winner Anne Bancroft died yesterday of cancer. She is ofcourse most famous for playing Mrs. Robinsion, who seduces Dustin Hoffman in The Graduate.

As NPR puts it, "her seduction of Dustin Hoffman was sexy funny and sad all at once -- and the scene has left an indelible mark on popular culture".

And here's to you, Mrs. Robinson,
Jesus loves you more than you will know
Wo wo wo
God bless you, please, Mrs. Robinson,
Heaven holds a place for those who pray ...

The song seems to have a whole different meaning right now ...!
