    Glad to know I'm not the only person who has connections to serial killer victims. My uncle lived in Seattle for a good number of years and knew family members of Green River Killer Gary Ridgway's victim Patricia Barczak(died at the age of 19 in 1986). Speaking of Gary Ridgway, he is still alive in prison and is now 72 years old and there have not been any updates on his status for years. Hopefully soon enough the grim reaper decides to strike him.

    1979 physics laureate Steven Weinberg has died aged 88: https://apnews.com/article/science-nobel-prizes-physics-fa5df3e3f8027f545d6d41c19151caeb He was not chosen in the NPDP but would have been worth 1.430 points. It seems that US-American scientists who share their prizes are very unlikely to score bonus points. Unless you are Weinberg's Co-laureate Sheldon Lee Glashow, who is now the last surviving laureate from 1979! One to put an eye on in 2022 - when he will turn 90 as well!

    Have been waiting a long time to use this in order to celebrate the end of Rodney Alcala! Yippi! He murdered a young girl Robin Samsoe, age 12, who was from my mother`s neighborhood in Huntington Beach, California many years ago. Glad he is gone!

Quite a personality, weeped at the funeral of authoritarian leader Antonio de Oliveira Salazar (1889-1970), involved in coups and allegedly worked with/for terrorist organizations, tried to seize power to become "Portugal's Fidel Castro" but didn't succeed. He was also the chief strategist of the 1974 Carnation Revolution that caused the dissolution of Americo Tomas's (1894-1987) Estado Novo.

    There is a nice memorial plaque for Robin Samsoe at the beginning of the Huntington Beach Pier. I stop at it and say a prayer for her everytime we visit California. She was murdered in 1979 and Alcala got to live until now. Terrible. The last I heard about Ridgeway is that they think they are able to link him with several more unsolved murders. The monster is still alive.

    Mostly for Paul, but anyone else of vague interest, BBC Scotland are doing a series all about disasters and in Episode 3 they covered the 71 Ibrox Stadium disaster. Anyhow, our Archie MacPherson showed up as a talking head interviewee and he looks and sounds a lot better than he did a few years ago.

    This is really a sad one... He was a gentleman and very funny, an intellectual with knowledge and interest in pop culture. And he discovered Kate Bush for the German music market. A cook and a gay icon. We really owe him a lot. R.I.P. Bio. https://twitter.com/ARD_Presse/status/1418486403567083527?s=20

    Clapton is a cunt in general, mind. Compare that stance to Neil Young, who won't go back touring until his audiences can be safe. His words.

    Not to pile on, but I will also claim a nice score for Rick Laird. Only two months in and I already have half the hits (4) and more than half the points (1000) I got in all of last years game. (It doesn't take much to keep me happy.)

    9 pages of discussion and still a week before the game starts. Skinny's got to be rethinking biting off this ball of cud. Anyway, I'm not going to read all 9 pages of chat here, but I am familiar with the site and have been playing for a few years, so I am in. I go by the same name (not sure why we would want pseudonyms for our pseudonyms, some people really ARE too competitive), so if I can join just send me the invite. I will be checking the site every few days until game time. Since it is Yankcentric, maybe it's a forum where I will have a chance against some of you superstars.
