Tony Benn dies, and so does the last strand of socialism.  He served his country, a strange concept now.

Former U S Navy sailor Glenn McDuffie aged 86 in Texas.

McDuffie was identified as the sailor in the iconic WW2 photo by Life magazine photographer Alfred Eisenstaedt who took a photo of a sailor kissing a nurse ( Edith Shain, died 2010) in New York's Times Square as people heard about the surrender of Japan, and per chance, Eisenstaedt took a photo of these two strangers as McDuffie, then aged 18, suddenly kissed a nurse standing near him.

Mickey Rooney has passed at the grand age of 93.  He may be more famous over here in the States, but with a career as long as his, almost all of his life, I'm sure he has been on the screen in England a few times.

I think he's just as well known over here Sue, I heard of his passing on the news this afternoon. He's had a long career I understand starting when he was a child.  He's also reached a grand age as you say. 

Here is the link to the BBC.

Yes, it's causing quite stir over here..they are saying that the illuminati murdered her for relasing names of Pedophiles on her tweet site...I can  not really say I've heard of her..but her eyes look so lifeless, so maybe she was abused also. She supposedly let the names loose of some people buying infants as young as 2 year's old for sexual purposes and rape.
