    Hollywood Possibilities

    Nope, just the ones where there is more than one relevant thread. On multiple occasions, when I've posted an obituary, someone comes along and suggests what they believe to be a more relevant thread than the one to which I've posted. So as to satisfy everyone (and keep my eye rolls to a minimum), I double post. Most of my entries are single thread.

    Journalists

    I recall having a university prof who was also a first nations (native) activist. Dead about a dozen years. As for the first name, only one I've ever heard of previously is TV guru Sherwood Stewart. Edit: That should read TV guru Sherwood Schwartz, who is apparently not the only Sherwood I know. Sherwood Stewart is a well-known tennis player in the 70s/80s, most noted for his success alongside long-time doubles player Ferdie Taygan.
