That doesn't really matter, does it? The deceased is either important to someone or they aren't. If it were someone ungoogable then background info might be necessary.

Why come here at all if you need to Google everything?

One can't Google things if one doesn't know they've happened. I am providing a service in The Morgue to alert those who are interested about someone who has died. I feel like I've done more than enough.

Kal El, you're seriously trying to tell me that as an ROC citizen, you've not heard of Chennault? Shame on you! You obviously don't love your country!

The wife of this gent. She helped Nixon win the 68 election by persuading Saigon to refuse participation in peace talks, promising a better deal once Nixon elected and was later a very influential lobbyist in DC. A staunch anti-Communist, she later, in the 1980s, promoted China-Taiwan trade.

Not Chennault so much as obscure British TV blokes and darts players. :wink:

Now I'm sad. http://www.indiewire.com/2018/04/isao-takahata-dead-dies-studio-ghibli-grave-of-the-fireflies-1201949581/
I've this on DVD for years. My kid loves Ghibli films, but at 9, he's too young for this one. Stunning, stunning work.
