I tried to use your "feedback" link, but it was broken. (I really hate this "new" tvsquad as it has now adopted all of the display bugs that have claimed every AOL-ran site)

Dixie Carter died recently, so I think a major revision of her portion in this report is due.

Danny Cooksey is alive and well. He has a flourishing career as a voice actor and is a musician on the side.

Charlotte Rae's still acting and hanging in there as well.
