I choose not to enter in to a never ending cycle of blame and hate. Probably the only option if you wish to maintain peace.

I agree - the cycle should have been ended years ago using his own methods.......

Yeah, but he's a bit like a rapist that says "at least I didn't touch little kids". He's still a terrorist and not a very pleasant person.

Anyway.

Fan Steve joins the U's

Not a celeb and I personally didn't even know the chap, but he was a life long fan of my home team who was terminally ill. The club signed him up to be the 12th man on the team sheet till the end of the season.

Unfortunately, he just passed away and didn't get to see Oxford play at Wembley one final time. We're in the league cup final in a little over a weeks time

Yevgeny Yevtushenko, 83

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/04/01/w...viet-poet.html

My favorite of the Russian poets who came to prominence in the sixties. Here's one of his works, Waiting, from https://www.poemhunter.com/poem/waiting-141/


My love will come
will fling open her arms and fold me in them,
will understand my fears, observe my changes.
In from the pouring dark, from the pitch night
without stopping to bang the taxi door
she’ll run upstairs through the decaying porch
burning with love and love’s happiness,
she’ll run dripping upstairs, she won’t knock,
will take my head in her hands,
and when she drops her overcoat on a chair,
it will slide to the floor in a blue heap.

Yevgeny Yevtushenko

I hadn't realised that Peter Skellern died last month from a brain tumour.

Apparently he was ordained by the C of E only last year - who knew.

He is one of my earliest top of the pops memories. Yes, I know it was 70s schmaltz, but there you go.
