Most amusing fact of the day: It seems Bob Hope’s death was much-awaited. His obituary in the Evening Standard was written by Alexander Walker, who died two weeks before him. And the one in the New York Times was written by a journalist, Vincent Canby, who died in 2000.

So, Bob Hope finally dies. I mean that in the nicest way – he was very old, bless him.
Bad news, of course, for his many admirers.
Good news, however, for Simon H, who bet in the Death Wish contest at his local pub that Bob would be the next to go. He reckons he’s up ?200, the lucky rascal. Profiting off death, that’s him.
