'All My Children' actor James Mitchell dies

Actor James Mitchell - who played the wealthy, gruff Palmer Cortlandt on the daytime soap 'All My Children' - died Friday at the age of 89.

I'm well aware of Palmer Cortlandt, because my mom watched that show daily for years.

Mitchell's last regular appearance on the soap was in 2008, but recently he appeared again on the show's 40th anniversary special.
