A personal miss. There weren't any bad news about him. He was "just" old. Another former german president, Walter Scheel, is even older and has dementia, but still lives. Von Weizsäcker always looked very statesman like to me, very sturdy. He was a very public voice until not so long ago.

Dammit, I tossed him from my DDP shortlist for lack of news.

ETA: Hang on, I didn't! :party:

In other news, former senator Wendell Ford has died aged 90. Four DDP-ers awaiting the qualifying obit.

Any longtime US Senator is going to get something in Reuters UK, so one was never in doubt: http://uk.reuters.co...N0KV27J20150122

 

Already on my third hit, much better pace than last year...

 

Well done, mate.  He was nowhere on my radar.  January been pretty decent to me as well.  Keep it up, er.... I mean, sorry to hear of your loss.

The dead can't sue - so it's open season if there genuinely is anything remotely fishy. In amongst all the Saville stuff are probably things that may well not stand up in court (rightly or wrongly) but there's no person (or inclination) to prove otherwise now.

 

The television news reports were all fairly open about unanswered questions where Sir Leon was concerned, and that's on the day his death was announced. They may be even less respectful tomorrow.

 

 

 

To be fair, the good old Daily Mail managed to sneak a few digs at useless lefties and the like into their coverage (which suggested a witch hunt against poor old Leon).

 

To be fair Mary, well, er, he did LOOK a bit like, ya know.

Didn't he?
