    Name Shame?

    Reading a Rolling Stone interview with Bruce Springsteen, I am tickled pink to learn that he has a terrier called Toast. Springsteen starts to walk me to my car — trailed by two dogs, a German shepherd named Dusty (Dusty Springsteen!) and a small apparent terrier named Toast. https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-features/bruce-springsteen-interview-new-album-touring-e-street-band-1059109

    The Dead of 2020

    Surely there are enough threads discussing the Deathlist, DL Predictions, Shadow Lists etc. Please keep this thread for posting actual deaths, any and all.

    38. Ruth Bader Ginsburg

    Ruth Bader Ginsburg always reminded me of my Aunt Pam.

    The Fringes Of Fame/family Of The Famous

    I don't know anything about him, or her, but the context suggests that he might have had some other lifelong illness or condition. I would have thought that if he too died of Covid she would have said so more plainly. Like "now it's taken my brother too", or wtte.

    That made me think of Dick and Dom. Word association .....

    The Fringes Of Fame/family Of The Famous

    She doesn't actually specify his cause of death, does she? Unless she says further down - I don't really get how Twitter works.

    Crew Of USS Enterprise

    "Elder abuse"? WTF? Sounds like fraud and theft to me.

    Time Added

    Not really, but the use of an apostrophe could shorten that sentence a little. Is this better? He was reportedly struck by a falling bullet fired into the air by a mourner at a funeral for a firefighter killed in last month's port explosion.

    Coronavirus death toll 2020

    I don't think so, because the small amount of protection offered either way by a mishandled mask must be better than none. But I take your point. I can't tolerate wearing a mask the whole time I'm out, so I only wear one when I'm inside a shop. I suppose I should be sealing that mask into a bag and breaking out a new one for the next shop. But I don't, because on a typical day in town I would be going through a lot of masks. As long as it stops me breathing potentially virus-laden exhalations over people, it must be better than nothing.

    UK Singles Chart

    I was just looking for initial N, thinking Nicholas might be his middle name.

    UK Singles Chart

    It should do. I expect they'll get round to it. The Wiki page for the band gives quite a lot of detail, including a real name for Tesco of Nick Lightowlers. Not too many of them about, but I don't see a Nicholas. This one might be worth consideration:

    Shadow Lists

    To be fair, Book isn't the worst offender. I have heard of a lot of the people on his list, even if they had to be explained to me ("Oh, that guy"). I mean, I'd never heard of Alex Trebek before people started talking about him here, but I was aware of the Jeopardy game show, so that works for me. Most of Book's names that are unknown to me are German, which is fair enough.

    Guilty Pleasures.

    I've just eaten a whole packet of pineapple Jaffa Cakes. They were half-price in Tesco the other day. I still have five packets left.
