Famed Civil Rights advocate James Lawson died at age 95.

https://www.bbc.com/news/articles/cw00w25x2pko

James Lawson, the black civil rights activist who travelled to India to study non-violent protest and served as chief strategist to Dr Martin Luther King Jr, has died at the age of 95.
Lawson, a Methodist minister, learned Mahatma Gandhi's principles of civil disobedience and taught them to protesters opposing racial segregation in the US.
Through his workshops, he instructed countless activists on how to passively resist horrific violence and threats from the police and angry white mobs in order to expose the immorality of racism.
King repeatedly praised his methods, calling him in a speech the day before his assassination one of the great "noble men" of the black struggle in America.

I have a friend who is back and forth to Malawi for work. Parts of the country are suffering from inflation up to 35%.
Here's one of the local wildlife that went through their camp recently.

Donald Sutherland died.
Sufficiently advanced incompetence is indistinguishable from malice. There’s a certain point at which ignorance becomes malice, at which there is simply no way to become THAT ignorant except deliberately and maliciously.

Donald Sutherland had so many great movies but my favourite, M.A.S.H.
His subtle sense of humour made that movie.
