    I was lucky enough to catch him live (no pun intended) and have to say you missed out, the guy was fantastic. Shame South Africa is such a ****hole and he happened to be from there

    Singer, actor Robert Goulet dies at 73

    Robert Goulet, the Canadian-raised singer known for his baritone voice and frequent TV appearances, has died, a spokesman for the singer said. He was 73.


    He had been awaiting a lung transplant in a Los Angeles hospital after becoming ill on Oct. 13 with a form of pulmonary fibrosis while returning from a concert appearance in Syracuse, N.Y.
    His crooner image and penchant for cheesy TV appearances have made him the subject of parodies, including one on The Simpsons, in which he is booked into Bart’s casino (in the tree house) and sings Jingle Bells (Batman Smells).

    Yer man who flew the plane that bombed Hiroshima died today, aged 92. No regrets, but doesn't want a grave as he fears it'll be targeted.

    No fault on his side, he was just carrying out orders, but I still can't condone what they did to those cities.

    If the Allies had to invade Japan, every city would have been destroyed and many more millions of citizens and soldiers would have been killed. Lesser of two evils I am afraid.

    I disagree, they could have first shown the Japanese a test of the atom bombs power by dropping it, and destroying, one of Japan's uninhabited islands, and warning them that they will do likewise to Tokyo. If the Japanese still refused to surrender after seeing what would happen then the blame would be entirely with the Japanese.

    Not to mention that I couldn't honestly ever call melting people the lesser of any evil
