Robin Cook, RIP
Apropos of the rare political post, I am saddened to learn (and a bit embarrassed that I learned it from Sharon, but we don't have TV or an internet connection at home) that Robin Cook has died. I've followed the various movements of the Labour Party since before the meltdown of the Major government, which happened when I lived in Germany and watched the news on Sky. I sometimes thought cook was a prat, but more often, and especially in terms of the war, thought he was one of the good ones. He was still quite young. How very sad.
