All over Twitter, death of former Nuts editor-at-large, longtime Guardian/Guardian guide contributor and former Countdown champion Pete Cashmore. A man I had many enjoyable conversations with and was proud to call a friend and inspiration. His suicide, frankly, doesn’t come as a surprise and hopefully he’s at peace writing 60-word takedowns of Paolo Nutini singles in the afterlife now.

TV critic Sarah Hughes talks about Games of Thrones and her stage 4 breast cancer diagnosis...

 

Very sad to read that, I enjoy Sarah's reviews and she is always willing to engage with readers.  She seems like a lovely genuine person.  Had no idea she'd had two stillborn babies in two years - how dreadful.

So back in 1963, JFK had a bad day in Dallas, you might have heard, and Lyndon Johnson wound up sworn in as President. Three journalists were onboard Air Force One to witness the oath, and 2 are long dead. But one of them is ex-NBC News journo Sid Davis (b 1927) who is still alive! But has no Wiki. I found this out in a doc on the new Freeview Smithsonian channel - and they say TV isn't good for DP research.

 

Thing on him from last year

 

Biography

 

Btw he looked frail as fuck talking about Jackie Kennedy, and is notable enough for any American obit accepting pool imo. Or Cup.
