“The great thing about Scotland Yard is it has this fantastic expertise in dealing with ceremonial events – as distinct from demonstrations we’ve seen recently.

“So given all that expertise and given

    this almost bottomless pot of cash

that David Cameron said ‘look have this’, there won’t be a problem.”

Ken Wharfe, former royal protection officer to Diana, Princess of Wales and Princes William and Harry.

New York Times obituary

Message from Ira Landgarten (thanks to Eddie Woods)

Dear Friends,

Approximately a month ago, Ira, who for some time has been living up on 106th St. in a somewhat diminished capacity since last summer’s infamous bedbug plague, apparently tripped or fell in the apartment & injured his right knee.

When his pain didn’t abate, he was finally cajoled into going to the hospital for an exam & x-ray. As nothing particularly noteworthy showed up, he went back home for some days, during which time, what might have started as an abrasion on his knee, became infected—his underlying diabetes exacerbated a small wound that for most of us would have healed-up with little consequence.

A visiting nurse, strongly advised he needed attention & he was brought to St. Lukes up on 114 & Amsterdam Ave. He’d been on a slow, tortuous down-ward spiral since…laid-low by an unspecified infection & a cascade of other serious ailments.

This evening, April 25, 2011, at about 6:30 he breathed his last…

There will be a small, private burial service & a future memorial/tribute to be announced…

Ira Landgarten, friend & colleague

Killed in Libya. This video-diary of Hetherington’s from a couple of years ago (other places other dead) was interesting to me at dawn today.

The Mississippi State Sovereignty Commission was the state’s official counter civil rights agency from 1956–1973. A sort of Southern Stasi it spied, photographed, surveilled every suspect. This archive has almost a thousand photographs of Freedom Rider mug-shots, documents, people of “interest” (including Philip Sanders Lapsansky of the “Spartacist League of the US”). Well worth a browse.
