Death of a great man
October 20, 2009 9:41 AM   Subscribe

A great Briton died yesterday What a life this man had, and what a contribution to the social fabric of the UK he made. My own personal endorsement of his life is that he reputedly upset Margaret Thatcher to such a degree that she refused to have his name on the honours list while she was the PM. He was later Knighted.

a bit thin, don't you think?

I see that you thought he was so great you didn't even wanted to mention his name or anything he contributed to the UK social fabric. That guy is so wonderful! I love all those things he did!

No name, but you remembered your personal endorsement! I'd prefer a name.

I dunno, I kind of like the idea of news stories written as though they were dialogue from Herb and Jamaal.
