Re: Orrin Hatch . 88
May he rot in whatever he'll he believes in. He helped make today GQP possible.

What can be asserted without evidence can also be dismissed without evidence. -Christopher Hitchens

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?

Kane Tanaka, 119
Although she didn't quite make it to her goal of 120 years old, Kane Tanaka still lived long enough to become the world's oldest person — a title she held for the past three years, and attributed to family, sleep, hope and faith.

Tanaka died last week at 119, Japanese authorities announced. Tanaka, who had been living at nursing home in Fukuoka, died on Tuesday at a hospital.

According to Guinness World Records, Tanaka was born prematurely on Jan. 2, 1903 — the same year the Wright brothers brought powered flight to the world. She was the seventh child in her family.

The oldest currently living person is now said to be Lucile Randon, a 118-year-old French nun. Randon is also the oldest known survivor of COVID-19.

Naomi Judd, 76
Naomi Judd, iconic country star and one-half of the mother-daughter duo The Judds, took her own life on Saturday following a longtime battle with mental illness at 76 years old, multiple sources confirm. A rep for the late singer hasn't commented.

Naomi's daughters, Ashley Judd and Wynonna Judd, announced their mother's death in an emotional statement obtained by PEOPLE on Saturday.

"Today we sisters experienced a tragedy. We lost our beautiful mother to the disease of mental illness...[deletia]..."

She had a lovely voice and a brilliant smile.

Patricia McKillip - 74
One of the best writers of fantasy out there. Writing short - by modern standards - and usually standalone novels in a field dominated by doorstops and series she stood out from the crowd.
It’s sad that we’ll see no more of her work, but we can be glad of what we do have.
