    Could have gone in Theatre, Screenwriters, Journalists, etc, so I've gone generic. Death Notice for what appears to be Stanley Price, writer: http://announcements.telegraph.co.uk/deaths/231755/price. I remember Moving with Penelope Keith and Ronald Pickup on ITV adapted from his play, others may know more of his work. IMDB: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0697157/

    In a world where you hear and read an overwhelming amount of bilge that makes you want to tear off your ears and fashion them into an eye mask , reading ‘How To Be Right’ by LBC’s James O’Brien is therapy. Many nails hit on heads. It’s nectar for the mind. I loved it.

    Ah history! October 1849? One Edgar Allan Poe and one Chopin after all... A year later, Robert Peel (British PM) and Zachary Taylor (US President) died in the same week. Of course there was much less celebrities in the 19th Century, which therefore brings notice to 3 dying in April 1882: Darwin, Emerson and Jesse James! Did Verdi hear of Queen Victoria's death, or William McKinley mourn Toulouse-Lautrec - the former died 5 days after the latter in 1901. Leo Tolstoy and Dr Crippen within the same three days in 1910 - there's two folk who surely never heard of each other! But yeah, not many before WW2, unless you count April 1912 - a bit of a cheat, given the Titanic, but Bram Stoker died 5 days later, so that is a number of famous folk in one week, even if 6 of them were on the same boat. Oh well, a modern one then: July 2007 Boots Randolph Bill Pinkney George Melly Jack Sowards (Wrath of Khan writer) Peter Tuddenham Charles Lane Lady Bird Johnson Nigel Dempster Kelly Johnson (Girlschool) Kronus Ivor Emmanuel Kai Seigbahn Doon Arden Jesus de Polanco Tammy Faye Messner Danny Bergara John Normington Tom Snyder Mike Reid Phil Drabble Bill Walsh Tam McGraw (gangster) Ingmar Bergman Michelangelo Antonioni Bar the stock wrestler, all of them got BBC/Guardian obits, and the last 8 were all announced on the same day practically.

    A female elephant known as the “saddest in the world” has died after living alone in a zoo for 43 years. The Asian elephant, named Flavia, died at Cordoba Zoo in southern Spain last week, where she had lived since she was three years old. Her physical health was said to have deteriorated during the last six months before her death. She was also reported to suffer from depression. Goddamn saddest story in the world. Now saddest on DL SC
