    Presumably because it's the people who'd be affected by the term/age limits that would have to make and agree to them - and I really can't see how you'd get a majority for it without a major scandal (like, mentally unfit to serve but actually becomes President" type scandal). Neither party will agree to term/age limits either and both have multiple geriatrics representing them in Congress, so supermajorities and control over Presidency doesn't matter either like it does for some other issues.

    Moskva sunk "due to the storm" per Russia. In unrelated news, Admiral of the Black Sea Fleet Igor Osipov reportedly arrested:

    In other news: Russian oligarch in exile Nevzlin claims Shoigu is either disabled or a dead man walking after a major heart attack that has left him hooked up to a million machines. To no one's surprise, the heart attack was reportedly not a natural occurrence

    The Moskva was the ship of "Russian warship go fuck yourself" fame This happened either day of or day after (depending on your time zone) Ukrainian postal services officially released the Russian warship go fuck yourself stamp. Ah, I love the smell of trolling in the morning.

    The Ukraine Crisis

    Russia confirms major fire onboard the flagship of the Black Sea fleet, the Moskva. Per multiple Ukrainian sources, the cause of said fire was two anti-ship Neptune missiles hitting the Moskva.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oleksandr_Rzhavskyy Former Ukrainian PM candidate Oleksandr Rzhavskyy killed in Bucha. Irony of ironies, he was extremely pro-Russian during his campaign, though he seemingly changed his mind when the invasion happened (if I'm reading the translation of the death notice correctly). He was 63. https://cripo.com.ua/news/war/v-buchi-p-yani-okupanti-zastrelili-eks-nardepa-ta-kandidata-v-prezidenti-oleksandra-rzhavskogo/

    From a couple of days ago: https://www.telegraph.co.uk/world-news/2022/04/01/russian-soldier-dies-radiation-poisoning-chernobyl/ Russian soldier dies from radiation poisoning in Chernobyl: Serviceman was part of a unit camped in the toxic nearby Red Forest, clueless about what they were being exposed to

    Twitter chatter for the last couple of hours that he's dead, though IDK how far to believe it - nothing from any verified accounts. Still, putting it here just in case it's actually true

He's in his 60s, and league execs tend to have to be pushed out the door in their 80s (see: Lou, L.) and they don't generally leave willingly for no reason

    Pelosi tested positive Just a normal positive test wouldn't be relevant enough to post here, but should note that she's in her 80s, so might have bearing

    Igor Belanov apparently literally fighting in the trenches (he doesn't seem to have social media, so no clue if this is just a photo op and he's doing more support work or he's actually literally fighting. He's 62, so he's not covered under the government's order requiring men 18-60 to stay in the country and fight).

    Okay, I dug into it a bit, and it seems it was an honest mistake - the morons at the Spittin Chiclets podcast, which if you haven't heard of it includes ex-NHLers and is a major name in the business, tweeted that Bossy had died. about 5 minutes later, the tweet was deleted, but by then the damage had obviously already been done. that said, given it was a proper tweet from Chiclets, I'd suspect Bossy's got maybe a day or two, a week if you're pushing. if he survives the month and makes it to the next round of the Deathlist Cup I'd be surprised, let's just say that.

    Doesn't seem like a reliable website or reliable news - there is no hockey insider reporting his death, no Twitter chatter that he has passed away. While he's no doubt very ill, I'm very suspicious of a random blog announcing someone's death based on random Twitter people's claims, so. Going to wait for a proper report on this one.

    The Ukraine Crisis

    I'm including no tweets or articles here due to the graphic nature of the images attached. However, horrific reports are tricking in from Bucha, a suburb of Kyiv. The city of about 30k people (population per Wikipedia) was liberated from Russian troops just over a day ago. Now, images of dead civilians lying on the roads with their hands tied behind their backs are coming out, as well as reports that the Russians went door-to-door and killed every man of fighting age (between 18-60).

    Missed this one somehow. Mykola Kravchenko, prominent member and apparently one of the founders of the Azov Battalion, was killed during the Battle of Kyiv on 14th March. He was 38: https://nv.ua/ukr/kharkiv/zaginuv-nacionalist-shcho-stoyav-bilya-vitokiv-pravogo-sektora-novini-harkova-50225521.html

    War photographer Maks Levin/Max Levin, who had been missing for over 2 weeks, has been found dead. Reports indicated he was killed purposefully with two small arms to the chest, likely due to his occupation.

    https://www.express.co.uk/news/world/1590128/Ukraine-news-Russian-soldier-dies-radiation-poisoning-Chernobyl If you're inclined to believe the Express, a Russian soldier died of radiation poisoning after a bunch of them decided to dig trenches in Chernobyl. Not a great evolutionary loss, that one
