Today's obituaries

John Raines, 1933 - 2017

“It looks like we’re terribly reckless people,” Mr. Raines told the New York Times in January 2014. “But there was absolutely no one in Washington — senators, congressmen, even the president — who dared hold J. Edgar Hoover to accountability.”

 Jeremy Hutchinson, 1915 - 2017

In 1960, as a junior counsel in the “Lady Chatterley” case, he played a prominent part in examining prestigious witnesses, including the novelist E. M. Forster, to support the argument that the novel, which explicitly describes the physical relationship between an upper-crust married woman and her husband’s gamekeeper, was a work of literature, not pornography.
“I believe you have written some novels,” he said in addressing Mr. Forster before the court to establish the author’s credentials.
 Malcolm Young, 1953 - 2017

Tom Petty, too fucking young.

A true American rock 'n roller -- the irony of him dying of cardiac arrest on a day of the true American phenomenon of mass murder by dint of modified automatic weapons in Las Vegas is almost too much. It should have been captured in a Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers song.

Can't say enough about his band and the fact that they remained largely the same personnel for 40 years.
