The EU

Google says the EU requires a notice of cookie use (by Google) and says they have posted a notice. I don't see it. If cookies bother you, go elsewhere. If the EU bothers you, emigrate. If you live outside the EU, don't go there.

Mandy Rice-Davies RIP

For John, BLUFJohn Profumo went and did charity work to atone for his sins.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

I am probably the only one, aside from my Wife, in Lowell, who remembers the Profumo Affair, Christine Keeler and Mandy Rice-Davies.  Ms Rice-Davies got a good sendoff on the pages of The International New York Times this morning.

Ms Rice-Davies, who made a success of her life, recently summed up that life with this comment.

My life has been one long descent into respectability.
Regards  —  Cliff

Too young to remember it as it happened, it's always been something I enjoyed to learn and read about. Ms. Rice-Davies seems like a far more honest and better human being than many/most of those with whom she consorted back in the days.

I remember it well. The whole matter rocked the staid British political establishment tot he core, and of course, allowed the English press a rare, legitimate piece of journalistic red meat. At the epicenter of the whole scandal was of course, Christine Keeler, now 71 and living in obscurity in South London. She is completely unrecognizable having gained much weight and wrinkles. But..she live on.
