The Cricket’s Daily 3: Farewell to Lauren Bacall

Here’s what’s happening today in pop culture:

• Lauren Bacall, the husky-voiced siren who smoldered onscreen with Humphrey Bogart and married him in real life, has died at the age of 89. (And, as Slate’s Miriam Krule pointed out, Bacall was the last icon name-checked in Madonna’s song "Vogue" to leave us.) [AP, Slate]
