It is reported that Jeffrey Epstien is dead. And the only reason that is a shame for me is that he now can not talk about his cronies within his enormous paedo lifestyle

Apparently so, good riddance but a bit extraordinary to have Trump tweeting that he had dirt on Bill Clinton,insinuating the Clinton's were behind his being taken off suicide watch.

 

Perhaps Donald has forgotten he too has links and prior associations to the deceased pedophile ?

 

I doubt there is much if anything of a conspiracy here, it seems more likely he was throat crushed by an inmate when allowed out in the yard, but that is all the speculation there is at the moment.

 

Cheers

There are probably very few in the USA who have not had some sort of connection with this piece of slime ... however  Bill Clinton spent more than a dozen visits to Jeffrey's Island and it is said that in five occasions Bill dumped his security detail so let's not be coy here about the guilt of the Clintons.

Nothing much would surprise me about the Clinton's, or Trump.

 

However I doubt Bill was able to ever dump his security detail - the last time that ever really occurred was in the Reagan era, and even then only more as a joke, when out on Regan's ranch with the perimeter well secured.

 

The SS really do take their job very seriously.

 

Cheers

Richard Williams died, 86, of cancer.

 

Who?

 

He was the animator who gave us Roger Rabbit and others, won a couple of Oscars along the way.

 

A good innings.

 

RIP.

Yeah, Just told of it, guess he lived long enough to not leave a particularly good looking corpse -not his quote, but he lived it....

 

RIP.

RIP - actually he was only 73 and looked pretty healthy from sightings I can remember.  Seems it was Acute myeloid leukemia.

OK, saw some more recent footage - he was wasting away.  Didn't really know him but seemed to be one of the decent types.

Yeah, but you have to wonder how any politician would look in the current political scene with the 24/7 news cycle. Kind of like how people ask how Bradman would go against modern bowlers. We'll never know.

robert mugabe

 

once upon a time the putative liberator of rhodesia, later despot dictator of zimbabwe

 

not before time at 95 years old; perhaps the promise held by stevie wonder's "jammin'" can finally come to be ?

Came out of the mold of so many African dictators, in for themselves and damn anyone else - just be good at timing when to leave.

 

Not really inclined to wish that one RIP at all.

valerie harper, american sitcom actress, and rhoda to mary tyler moore in her eponymous show, before getting her own spin off

a pretty feminist offering for the 1970's, following the success of "that girl" in the mid to late 60's,  and the rather unconventional slightly later scenario of "julia" in that regard (about a black single mum, who is a successful worker) which amazingly both pre-dated mtm on tv

 

another piece of my childhood gone, aged 80

 

r.i.p. lady

 

addit :  i didn't realise i was such a luminary about early feminist sitcoms on american tv  🙂  perhaps they were more influential than i realise

Almost missed this, she always had a very strong personality that came over well in the shows.

 

RIP.

Eddie Money, dead at 70, cancer again.

 

I can't say his music was really my thing but you could hardly avoid him in the eighties.

 

RIP.
