(I was tempted to oblige.)

Another UK cultural one, sorry, but Heinz meanz Wolff. Was thinking of him, the other day. (And the time I met him on a visit to Brunel University, where the map of the main building was labelled something like "tutorial rooms are numbered (whatever to whatever) and main lecture theatres are numbered A, B, C, D, E, F…" )

Cardinal Bernard Law, central figure in Boston sexual abuse scandal, dies at 86

And the Catholic Church officially remains as tone-deaf regarding him as ever. Sigh.

Aw.

Erica Garner, Black Lives Matter activist, dies of a heart attack, aged 27

She was the daughter of Eric Garner, who died in a police chokehold in 2014. She leaves an eight-year-old daughter and a four-month-old son.

She was unaware until her recent pregnancy that she had heart problems.
