    Lars-Goran Petrov is a hit for me. I've sent in the NME (New Music Express) obit, which should be sufficient. At least two other people had him, maybe more.

    Spanish Civil War Veteran(s)

    That's a weird page – I used to contribute to it years ago as the International Bridge names started falling off, then it quickly became clear that there were many many more out there than first thought. New names are often added to that list periodically, BUT they are just the ones who have been mentioned by sites online somewhere. In reality there will be many more people who fought in the Spanish Civil War still alive. Still a few years left to go before we'll realistically be down to the "last" bunch from that conflict.

    That's your prerogative, but the definition of racism you've given above is, in my opinion, barely scratching the surface of what racism is.

    Racism is where discrimination causes real harm to people. Not imagined slights. There's a woman who lives near me who insists that any mention of her children's hair is racist. She's a light-skinned black woman married to a white man and their children look white, but have curly hair. As do many white people. That sort of crap. I'm not going to pursue this any further.

    Lars Goran Petrov dead. Already made NME and Kerrang, may sneak an actual QO at this rate, so could be good news for the two DDP teams who gambled on him.

    Well yes, but what is "true racism" and what isn't? Who's the arbiter?

    I don't condone racism. True racism is vile. I just don't agree with the modern obsession of interpreting everything as racism, down to a mere mention of someone's ethnicity. I'll leave it to the snowflakes.

    The Happy Birthday Thread

    Actor George Innes is 83 today. You'll know the face if not the name. It's a long list of credits, taking in the National Theatre & The Old Vic, film roles in Billy Liar, The Sweeney (the original & 2), The Italian Job (the original), Quadrophenia, and TV roles both sides of the Atlantic, including Budgie, The Good Life, Dixon of Dock Green & I, Claudius and over the pond, Magnum PI, M*A*S*H, The Fall Guy & Hill Street Blues. (It would be as easy to list the things he hasn't been in)
