Via The Chicago Tribune:

Mary Scruggs, the head of writing and education programs for The Second City Training Center, died at her home late Tuesday night, said Kelly Leonard, the executive vice president of Second City. She was 46. "She was a wonderful writer and a terrific performer," said Anne Libera, Second City's director of comedy studies and Scruggs' close friend. "But in her heart she was simply an astonishing teacher. There were so many students to whom she gave her best."

    I feel that the most critical thing for kids in a day nursery or Head Start is for the parental figures to think about the kids. I could mindless if the educator does not know how to spell or utilize appropriate English constantly.

This is such sad news. Mary was incredibly encouraging and so very funny. She was a wonderful teacher, a sentiment I'm sure every one of her students would share.
