Frank McCourt dies

Legendary writer Frank McCourt lost his battle with cancer yesterday and died at the age of 78 in New York City. Frank had been battling skin cancer for a while and was actually released in June to recoop from treatment, but since his immune system was still shot, he ended up coming down with meningitis about 2 weeks ago, which played a major part in his death. He's best known for writing the popular book-turned-movie Angela's Ashes. For the record, this isn't the same Frank McCourt that owns the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Our thoughts go out to Frank's family and friends.
