Helen Fawkes finally has an obit! http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-40290563

Well, I wondered how long that was going to take. Probably one of the most suspenseful obit waits tbh.

Simon Ricketts is talking about life and death and everything in a podcast. Haven't listened to it yet:

Six months left is his default worst case scenario, apparently. He's hopefully of 2-3 years. No "oh I have metastases" or other helpful statements, so all opinion. In a Zevonesque enjoy every sandwich mood.

He sounded well .Pragmatic about limited time left but enjoying himself.Didnt mention pain or disability.

 

For the record has he ever written anything of note?Aside from his own blog and two guardian articles I cant find anything.Is he more of a cancer blogger than journalist.Or is there some important work he has done that I am overlooking.He has a lot of twitter followers and gets retweets from fairly big names.

Was this all before the internet?Hardly anything about the guy online.Seems odd for a journalist who has worked for many of the nations biggest papers.

Probably in the archives section of the library. The Internet is pretty unrestricted.

Richard Dudman, a much-traveled reporter for The St. Louis Post-Dispatch who spent more than a month in captivity in Cambodia after being ambushed by Vietcong fighters and later survived an assassination attempt after meeting the Cambodian dictator Pol Pot, died on Thursday in Blue Hill, Me. He was 99.

Swedish journalist Kim Wall, missing since August 11 after boarding a privately built submarine, died in an accident and was buried at sea, the vessel's owner Peter Madsen told a court hearing in Denmark.

Madsen, who has been charged with manslaughter, told a closed-door court hearing that he buried Wall at sea in an "unspecified place" in Køge Bay, according to a statement published by Copenhagen City Council on Monday.
Wall, 30, was on the Nautilus for a story she was writing on Madsen and the 17-meter submarine.

The jerk hacked all her limbs and head off and tried to sink them in the ocean (kind of like Dexter from the TV program with the same name.) There was a similar murder in Scandinavia a while back as well. Mmmmmmm could there be a connection?

Doesn't really come across as the smartest killer in the room, really.
