Lana Turner has collapsed - Frank O'Hara

Sad news today about Yma Sumac. She passed away on All Saints Day. She was a saint to me and to many people. I will never forget seeing her perform in San Francisco betwixt two giant tiki gods. Amsterama called to tell me the news. Frank O'Hara couldn't have put it better: "Lana Turner has collapsed!"

That's tragic. She should have sung at the Obama Inaugural.
