I am neither a greater follower of celeb news nor a regular reader of the Mail on Sunday, it won't surprise you to know. But, cynicism aside, there was a touchingly authentic article today by actor Natascha McElhone -- whose husband, surgeon Martin Kelly, suddenly and tragically dropped dead of a severe heart attack recently, at the age of 42. Its tenor was not self-pity but gratitude, which makes a refreshing change in the narcissistic world of 'Californication'.

"I don't know why I'm not surprised that his life came to an abrupt end. I didn't think 'Why us? Why me?', I just thought, "Thank God I've lived like this thus far. Whatever happens, it was worth every ounce of pain I'm going through now."
