Lets give Sir John Hurt a more dignified photo eh Tangle.

He was magnificent in 1984 and Midnight express

Investivative reporter who wrote critical Trump piece in Jan 1979
Wayne Barrett died in January.

His Like Father, Like Son Jan 15,1979 article was the first of many.

He has been given credit (by Senator Chuck Schumer himself! ) for a Democratic pick-up in the 1998 Senate race where Republican incumbent Al D'amato lost to Schumer.

D'amato made his major campaign issue the almost complete absence of Schumer in the Senate in 1998 and Schumers only response (oft repeated in the most expensive campaign in history ) was the self-defeating, "THE tRUTH Chuck Schumer has a 92% lifetime attendance record " as if that helped him.

But Barrett somehow managed to get a ton of tips after digging relentlessly , with the help of an army of interns, in the Long Island county of Nassau (D'Amato was a member of the board of supervisors when he ran for the Senate successfully in 1980) ffor any government documents that could put D'Amato in the spotlight. It resulted in Barrett getting Board of Supervisors minutes showing the then GOP Senate candidate missed 91% of votes while aggressively making his 1980 Senate run.

The story ran on the night before the election and sunk the Republican incumbent''s campaign as his attendance attack on the future Democratic leader was essentially the main beef he felt voters would have been concerned with enough to reject the candidacy of.

Bruce Hampton - April 30, 1947 May 1, 2017
A personal favorite.

Collapsed onstage while performing for his (more or less) 70th birthday party. The video says he died onstage, I don't know if that was literally true.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3VbO93iXmTA - If the above doesn't work.

Re: Roger Moore (James Bond) dies at 89
I never knew Roger Moore was that old! R.I.P. Life truly is like a vapor...here today and gone tomorrow.

Chance as a real force is a myth. It has no basis in reality and no place in scientific inquiry. For science and philosophy to continue to advance in knowledge, chance must be demythologized once and for all. RC Sproul
"A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes." Mark Twain "

"as long as chance rules, God is an anachronism."~Arthur Koestler

Roger we will miss you.
The only Bond movie I have been able to actually watch all the way through is the 1967 Casino Royale. Need to watch that again.

But Roger Moore did suit the character.

One important characteristic of a theory is that is has survived repeated attempts to falsify it. Contrary to your understanding, all available evidence confirms it. --Subbie
