    I was gonna say, this is relatively low speed. I thought the landspeed record was nearly high-9s fractions of Mach 1.

    Oh ****, they did break the sound barrier.

    50 years ago today.

    The NY Times death notice appears to be behind a pay wall, so this will have to do. https://www.archive.org/stream/aufba.../n152/mode/1up
    See the right-hand page, second column, second death notice. Or should I have written “rechte Seite, zweite Spalte, zweite Todesanzeige”?

    9 years ago today, my Mom shuffled loose the mortal coil. She never met Amber Marie.

    Absolutely, although he's a tragic case. If Mugabe had been assassinated sometime in the first 5 years of his presidency he'd be regarded as one of the greatest heroes of world, let alone African, history. Before he became really, really bad, he was really, really good.

    He's a great example of how easily power can corrupt.

    The media has always been as vacuous as now, right down to Betteridge's Law. Don't blame the internet.
