Goodbye to Dixie Carter

I just read that Dixie Carter passed away yesterday at the age of 70. I adored her as the elegant and educated Julia Sugarbaker in "Designing Women." Even as a little girl, I recognized her Southern charm and feminist streak, especially evident in the speeches she often gave while in character. This one is my very favorite (and that's her real-life husband, actor Hal Holbrook, she's yelling at).
