Is it selfish to feel that we were robbed of their talents? Jeez! Jimi died when I was only 15 and I still miss him - and what he could have done.

A tribute from Russell Brand:

Quote:
When you love someone who suffers from the disease of addiction you await the phone call. There will be a phone call. The sincere hope is that the call will be from the addict themselves, telling you they've had enough, that they're ready to stop, ready to try something new. Of course though, you fear the other call, the sad nocturnal chime from a friend or relative telling you it's too late, she's gone.

It really is such a shame. She had such a soleful voice.

It's eerie too that her mother's name is Janis. You don't see that spelling very often.

French Resistance hero Nancy Wake dies at 98

Quote:
Australian Nancy Wake, who as a spy became one the Allies' most decorated servicewomen for her role in the French Resistance during World War II, has died in London, officials said Monday. She was 98.
Quote:
France decorated her with its highest military honor, the Legion d'Honneur, as well as three Croix de Guerre and the Medaille de la Resistance.

The United States awarded her its Medal of Freedom and Britain, the George Medal. Her only Australian honor did not come until 2004, when she was made a Companion of the Order of Australia.
(What an interesting life...)

Mark Hatfield dies: Former Oregon senator was 89
Rest in peace.
By Emma Brown,

Former senator Mark O. Hatfield of Oregon, whose liberal Republican politics during five terms in Congress made him an increasingly rare breed within his party, and who used his chairmanship of the Appropriations Committee to denounce what he considered the “madness” of excessive defense spending, died Sunday evening in Portland, said Gerry Frank, a longtime friend and former aide. He was 89.

As a young Navy officer during World War II, Mr. Hatfield saw the devastation wrought by atomic warfare in the Japanese city of Hiroshima. That experience, coupled with his Baptist faith, were defining forces in shaping Mr. Hatfield’s political views during nearly half a century in elected office.

Jack was a strong and positive force in Canadian politics. Canada will be a lesser place without him. Jack, I and all Canadians miss you already.

Wow! Jack will be given a state funeral; and people all over the country are holding vigils. I am deeply moved.

Edit: Jack's letter to the public only 2 days before he died:
