Sadly not a qualifying obit for Jock Scot, but thought I'd post it. National: http://www.thenation...th-cancer.16379

 

Now he has a press notice, who knows? Still awaiting a qualifying one though.

Interview with DDP pick Jock Scot here. Nothing of particular interest: he's still refusing chemo and describes his condition as "stable". Should apparently have been dead by October last year according to doctors.

C K Williams Pulitzer Prize winning poet dead at 78

 

I dare someone at the Times Literary suppliment to announce The Pultizer prize for poetry with the headline "Poets Win Prizes"

I was the Court Poet
For big Nicolae
I turned 65

It's my turn to die.

 

Corneliu Vadim Tudor, a nationalist politician and court poet to late Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceausescu, who attracted audiences by saying what mainstream politicians didn't dare, has died. He was 65.

Ah, no wonder I couldn't google him. His name is spelt wrong in the DDP list! Also, is it time for a "chemotherapy causes cancer" conspiracy theory yet? Martin Crowe could join.
