I’d drink a Milk&Pepsi in her honor if I had any Pepsi in the house.

I was flipping channels one night last year, and came across Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams on one of those kid’s sitcoms that air on Nickelodeon. Even though they were much older, they still had their chemistry and comic timing. A Golden Girls version of Laverne & Shirley might have worked!

RIP - from erasing issues to highlighting them - by strength and guile.

He was a very big deal here (Austin). There is a bill filed to rename a major road after him.

I can’t see the link mate - though hope he does get that road named after him. Seems a quality way to both honour and remember people from in and around local communities.

‘Lyra McKee: 29-year-old journalist shot dead in Derry – video obituary’:-

‘Lyra McKee was fatally wounded during rioting in Derry on Thursday night, becoming what is believed to be the first journalist killed in the UK since Martin O’Hagan was shot in Lurgan, County Armagh, in 2001. The 29-year-old was an acclaimed Northern Irish journalist, who wrote about the Troubles and campaigned for LGBT rights.’

https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/video/2019/apr/19/lyra-mckee-29-year-old-journalist-shot-dead-in-derry-video-obituary
 

I really hope that we’re not regressing back to the bad old days of The Troubles - yet unfortunately it does seem to be escalating to a point where we’ll be there soon enough.
 

Edit: Lyra McKee killing: ‘New IRA’ admits responsibility - from the BBC.
 

RIP Lyra McKee.
