On 26 March Dutch baseball player and football player Hugo Walker died, aged 81.

For millions of Dutch this face is unfamiliar, but Walker's voice isn't. He did football commentary on the Sunday evening TV sports programs Studio Sport. He's probably best known for his phrase "Komt dat schot!" ("There's the kick!").

In all the excitement I completely missed that Prosper Ego died 23 January 2015. He was a propagandist for the almost-fascist right of the variety that prefers shouting and bullying to reason.

Nasty people deserve an obit too.

Dutch news in the news. :scratchhead:

If he's from a hackers collective, why didn't they just hack into the live feed?  :scratchhead:


It didn't take long for rumours to fly about this young man being a confused student at Delft Technical U. Completely without sources, of course. The gunman's manners are spotless. Police press conference now.

Edit to add: 19 y/o man from Pijnacker, born in Zoetermeer. I know those places, they do strange things.

regards,
Hein

The article says that the board declared that they must : "respect her choice", code for suicide.

Dutch fashion designer Frans Molenaar died 9 January, aged 74. I care not for his work, but the cause of death is unusual. He died from injuries sustained when he fell off the stairs a few weeks ago.
