In a most extraordinary news story dominating British media, it seems that a 99-year-old man has died peacefully at home after recently being unwell. Members of his family have reacted by being sad about his death.
I'll let you all know if I get any more details of this hard-to-believe sequence of events.

Oh and this one:
Stolen Statue Found in Antique Shop
Surely only the Italians could have an "art squad"?? Didn't they make a joke about this on Frasier?

The BBC has received over 100,000 complaints about their coverage.

Can you imagine when the Queen goes?

I think that's hilarious. BBC execs think they're living in the fifties or something, when news like that would have people jumping off bridges or cancelling weddings or whatever. They refuse to accept that Britain is so cosmopolitan now that a lot of people don't care so much about the Royal Family, and with the treatment "outsiders" have got, plus the emigration of Harry and Meghan, it's just not the big deal it used to be.

Plus it's only Prince Philip: what did he ever do, other than drive well after he should have been having the sense to be driven around? And he was ninety-****ing-nine! How long did people expect him to live??

Biden to Withdraw All Combat Troops From Afghanistan by Sept. 11

Long overdue but I can't believe it until I see it happen.

Hank Azaria Apologises for Voicing Apu
I don't take any pleasure in disagreeing with you, TH, especially, as you say, "it's a cartoon show". Still I think Azaria's apology is a decent gesture, for 2 reasons:

1. Architecture. You learn early on that the most satisfying way to use materials is to let them be and look like themselves. That's why real flowers are nicer than plastic ones, and why this type of stone cladding is not very convincing. Everyone can work out that it's a brick house:



2. I suspect that there are not a bunch of job opportunities for actual Indian voice-over actors, so to have given the job to HA is a missed chance to spread the wealth of the entertainment industry around a little more. I don't want to use today's "woke" attitudes to beat up people who made what used to be perfectly acceptable choices for their era, but hasn't there often been a racially-exclusive undercurrent running through the entertainment industry, as these examples illustrate:-

How did they advertise for these desirable acting jobs, I wonder?

Starring role for Dr. Fu ManChu in new movie (no Chinese applicants please)


Unemployed professional dancer? Great opportunity to join the long-running Black and White Minstrals - but only for white minstrals, of course.

Without a second thought, I've enjoyed the Apu character for years but now that your news story brings it to my attention, I feel kind of sad about the casting choice because I know there's a poor Asian guy sitting in a bedsit in Hollywood who was denied his big breakthrough.
