DIED: HERBERT BLOCK, better known as the Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist of The Washington Post named Herblock, 91, died in Washington Sunday. “Doonesbury” creator Garry Trudeau considered Herblock a master satirist, one who chronicled the national political arena for more than six decades. EMILIE SCHINDLER, 93, the wife of German industrialist Oskar Schindler, the hero of the Steven Spielberg movie “Schindler’s List” (which all but ignored her companion efforts to save Jews from Nazi extermination), passed away in Berlin on Friday. Also, the liberal, scholarly former leader of the Senate’s Democratic majority (from 1961 until his retirement in 1976), MIKE MANSFIELD of Montana, 98, died in Walter Reed Army Hospital in Washington Friday. All told, the respected legislator had served 34 years in Congress . . . PULLED: For the first time since its debut last May, Rosie magazine will not have a photo of its publisher, Rosie O’Donnell, on the cover of its November issue. Instead, Drew Barrymore, 26, will appear alone. “I’ve been trying not to be on the cover from the beginning,” O’Donnell, 39, told the New York Post. She’ll also reportedly shun the limelight in December, when a solo John Travolta, 47, will grace the cover . . . CHARGED: Jamiroqaui lead singer Jason Kay, 31, will appear in a London court next week on charges of common assault and criminal damage, according to Scotland Yard. The frontman of the Grammy-winning funk band (for 1996’s “Travelling Without Moving”) is accused of allegedly accosting photographer Dennis Gill and damaging his camera equipment outside a London nightclub in April . . . OPENED: Osmond brother Jimmy Osmond, 38 (the youngest sibling of Donny, 43, and Marie, 41), has opened the Osmond General Store, offering showbiz memorabilia, in Park City, Utah. Among the items for sale, besides Osmond stuff): a $2,195 toy pistol once owned by Elvis, a $3,995 pair of leather dress gloves worn by Marilyn Monroe and a $2,995 guitar autographed by Garth Brooks. “We worked with a lot of these people,” Osmond, who guarantees the authenticity of all of his merchandise, told the Associated Press.
