    Death, Italian Style

    89 year old Holocaust survivor and life senator, Liliana Segre, currently under police guard after receiving numerous death threats. She's angered the Italian far-right for suggesting that a committee to combat hate should be established. That's a lot of stress for an elderly person. Will her heart be able to take the strain?

    Ideas and Possibilities for 2020

    Yes, Ripon City FC, currently showcasing their skills in division two of the West Yorkshire League, is the correct answer.

    Ideas and Possibilities for 2020

    The reformed Salisbury FC (the previous incarnation were liquidated) are in the Southern League Premier division, or the seventh tier.

    Ideas and Possibilities for 2020

    Talking of Ely City, a quiz question - Which English city's highest ranking club plays in the thirteenth tier of the footballing pyramid?

    Political Frailty

    The DUP's Brexit spokesman, Sammy Wilson MP (who I can't help liking, due to his scruffy appearance and habit of waving paper around when speaking in Parliament) looked even more unhealthy than usual on the news tonight. He seems to have a remarkably purple complexion for a teetotaler and also disappeared from view for a short while earlier this month. Just a hunch, but I'd suggest Wilson is someone we need to be keeping under observation.

    Derby Dead Pool 2019

    My view is to reinstate all of them, although I accept I may be in a minority on that one. The barring of these sources was done with the best of intentions, but I do think it has resulted in the odd quirky, stylish or interesting person missing out on points. Variety is the spice of life (and death?) and while we can eternally debate the notion of 'celebrity', I can't say I'm a huge fan of the drift towards the Drop 40 mentality of deciding to pick someone because you think everyone else will as well. IMO this significantly impacts on the chances of those who don't want to follow the herd and that seems wrong to me. I would add that none of the above should be seen as a criticism of @themaninblack, who had the impossible task of trying to please everybody and didn't always get the appreciation he deserved. In fact I would go as far to say that, at times, he got a rough deal on here both as a poster and as a deadpool organiser. As a mod, there were a couple of occasions where I now regret not intervening to support him and his continued absence from these forums bothers me. TMIB was one of us, going right back to the early days, ultimately sacrificing huge amounts of his time to keep the rest of us entertained. I miss him and I want him to come back. Hopefully he will reappear some day.

    Your Personal Survivors

    Al-Baghdadi's death means I'm down to one survivor from my 2008, 2010, 2012 and 2016 squads.

    Football

    I'm not really one for football tribalism, but, even so, I thoroughly enjoyed watching the mighty Exeter City put a woeful Plymouth Argyle to the sword this afternoon. The biggest derby victory since 1925, 4-0 and they were lucky to get nil!

    What Are You Listening To Right Now?

    @maryportfuncity , have you ever had the pleasure of listening to the box set Atomic Platters: Cold War Music From The Golden Age Of Homeland Security? It's full of obscure 50s ballads and ditties about our impending doom. You'd love it!
