    Tuskegee Airmen

    I've posted about six Tuskegee Airmen over the past couple years. Wiki says they don't know how many there are remaining, but I think 35-40 is a fair guess. Anyway let the countdown begin. When they become rarer than hen's teeth we will get an accurate count. They should be in their very late 80s by now. One of the original Tuskegee Airmen, Dr. Thurston L. Gaines, Jr., died in California Saturday. He was 94. Gaines, as one of World War II's Tuskegee Airmen, was one of the United State's first black military pilots. He flew a P-51 Mustang in 1945. In April 1945, Gaines was shot down over Germany and captured. He was held in German prisons until he was liberated in June of 1945 by Gen. Patton's division. Gaines received the Congressional Gold Medal from President George W. Bush in 2007. He also received the Purple Heart.

  3. I had forgotten about her too. I thought the tail end of the documentary indicated they were bringing her to civilisation and that was that. They were only to keep that hut as an historical piece and nothing more, ie they weren’t sending her back out there. Again that was my understanding but heaven knows Sir Creep can be mistaken on a rare occasion.

    Steve Jobs

    A small group of Steve Jobs’ family, friends and former colleagues have collected his bits of wisdom into “Make Something Wonderful: Steve Jobs in his own words,” available free to the public online starting on April 11. Somewhere between a posthumous memoir and a scrapbook album, it is told through notes and drafts Jobs emailed to himself, excerpts of letters and speeches, oral histories and interviews, photos and mementos.

    I love this idea, you should do it msc. I still want to do a team of those who ‘beat cancer’. One day.

    Neil Diamond

    Neil Diamond is only just accepting his Parkinson’s diagnosis. The singer-songwriter, who is 82, first announced his diagnosis and that he would be retiring from touring in 2018. But in a new interview with CBS Sunday Morning that will air this weekend, Diamond admitted he spent the two years after his doctor informed him of his diagnosis in complete denial. Diamond said he only started to process that he had Parkinson’s “in the last few weeks.” SC

    John Farnham

    Not sure what others read but this trip to hospital seemed pretty reasonable and take. I never once considered him for my April Cup team for instance.

    Deathlist Cup 2023

    lol btw that’s the new saying ‘doing a diego’ which isn’t bad necessarily, cuz he was right on. But it’s sure scary. I do not believe for one minute Frank Field will die in April but as I said ‘I can’t pull a diego’ and be swinging in the breeze a sure loser when he dies. So I put his name on as a defensive measure. btw good luck @Banana it’s always a formidable challenge when I see your name. Too formidable.

    The deaD of 2023

    John Corrigan, former chief executive of the National Treasury Management Agency and one of the chief architects of Ireland’s recovery from the financial crisis, has died at age 76. While he spent most of his career at the NTMA, including five critical years as chief executive officer from 2009 to 2014, Mr Corrigan also had stints at AIB, Davy and the Irish Stock Exchange. SC

    Widow(er) Shopping

    Looking for a last minute Cup person, I found this, and hoped against hopes she was 'somebody', but she isn't alas. 'Just' a military wife. So....since I canna use her, I'll post her. Jacklyn Healy's husband of 69 years was the late Maj. Gen. Michael "Iron Mike" Healy, an Army Special Forces legend nicknamed "Iron Mike," an inspiration for the tough, intrepid John Wayne character in the 1968 movie "The Green Berets." This week, Jacklyn Healy, 92, is in hospice care at her home in Jacksonville, FL. SC

    Ideas and possibilities for 2024

    For someone who has had numerous DDP unique hits (so I've read), you think you'd know to post this in the Political Frailty thread.

  20. Would it have to be 173 before you stop wasting your upvote on this one? It's IN, I promise. There are plenty of songs waiting for your help. For less than the price of a cup of tea per day you can make a real difference in the life of a needy song.
  21. It's utter cringe, and I can only conclude that people voting it up are being ironic. I couldn't agree more with these comments. If the three of us make a concerted* effort, we can make it go away. I know I know...can you imagine TQR/Toast/SirC teaming up. Sometimes you have to dance with the devil. *concerted=acting in concert.

    In Memoriam: Jon Bruce (sheffieldeagles.com) Is this the right Jon Bruce? DDT pick if so.

    FTR, although we can agree to disagree about whether a 15-year head chef should pretty much get an automatic pass in this DP, it would appear based upon his crowdfunding page (that was halted), that Green Kambukoll may have been DOA on or about February 28, making our March conversation moot. It would have been a really great pick. I love finding the Green Kambukolls of the world. Sadly they are few and far between, esp this month.

    Deathlist Cup 2023

    And by scrub team you mean what I will be turning in later. I canna find a single secret person, they all keep dying too soon (see: Bishop Fernand Cheri III, Coach Ted Hammond, Molly Cooper). I'm tired of writing down the same 6 names (Jimmy Carter, Rolf Harris, et.al.) before I even get started researching, but it's impossible NOT to include them. I've never put teams together like this before, it sucks. I keep turning in scrub teams.
