Louise may have died, but Nurse Ratched lives on!

. . . congratulations! . . .

It is with great sadness that PacificaWatch has to announce the death of Louise Fletcher. Louise died yesterday, F23Sep. The thoughts and prayers of all at PacificaWatch are with Louise’s relatives and friends at this difficult time. Louise died at home, in Montdurausse, France, a hamlet above the Tarn valley, a river perhaps best known for its bridge at Millau, 50% higher than the Golden Gate, a tad above the Eiffel Tower. May the angels speed Louise’s soul, soaring upwards, to the Almighty.

Louise was best known for portraying a character created by novelist Ken Kesey in a film directed by Milos Forman. Lesser known is the inspiration for Ken’s character. This was a resident of the Bay Area, a celebrity in her own right, Christina B Huggins. (Yes, her parents displayed prescience with the ‘B’.) From an early age it was apparent that Chrissy was destined to stand out from the crowd.

It was as if Louise knew:

It looks as though you all hated me so much. But you have given me this award for it. And I’m loving every minute of it. All I can say is, I’ve loved being hated by you.


Christina Huggins. A living Thanatos.

Louise may be dead but Nurse Ratched lives on. And for this we are eternally grateful.
