Somebody better go find that girl, the one they called IE+. I feel the honour of writing his dreaded headline should go to her.
After the affair he put that in his will, so the rumour goes.

A sad day! Claude LÚvi-Strauss was the greatest anthropologist and an inspiration for me and a lot of others around the world. What does he see now with a view from afar...?
Yep, I concure. A sad day! Claude LÚvi-Strauss was the greatest anthropologist I removed totally from my 2008 list of 50 names, only to religate him into my 2009 "68 name" list. Doh.

Does he get a cookie for being a smart old Jew? Looks like plenty are dropping at the end of the year.
Bloomberg wire is reporting:
By David Henry
Nov. 3 (Bloomberg) -- Claude Levi-Strauss, the French
social anthropologist who influenced generations of
intellectuals with his ideas on culture and said the human
species would become extinct, has died. He was 100.

Levi zipped up!
Levi-Strauss - Faded genes
That's a corker!
There's a thread somewhere on the forum that a lot of puns were posted for the various 'candidates'. Buggered if I can find it now.
But blaming me is blaming God;
Could I create myself anew
I would not fail in pleasing you.
