Said it before: only death and human stupidity are certain. Taxes optional.

King Bhumibol Adulyadej of Thailand has died.

Quote:
BANGKOK, Oct 13 (Reuters) - Thailand’s King Bhumibol Adulyadej, who was the world’s longest-reigning monarch, died in hospital on Thursday, the palace said in an announcement. He was 88.

King Bhumibol reigned for seven decades after ascending the throne in 1946. His loss will be deeply mourned in Thailand, where he was regarded as a pillar of stability during decades of political upheaval and rapid development.

The palace did not give a reason for his death but he has been sick in hospital with various ailments for much of the past year.

“His Majesty has passed away at Siriraj Hospital peacefully,” the palace said, adding he died at 15:52 (0852 GMT).

His son and heir apparent, the 63-year old Crown Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn, is expected to become Thailand’s new king.


Not a big deal to us, of course, but Thai people worldwide are deeply mourning his passing.

Tom Hayden, 1960s radical who became champion of liberal causes, dies at 76



Quote:
Inspired by sociologist C. Wright Mills and French author Albert Camus, among others,Hayden and his fellow students bemoaned poverty, racial bigotry, the Democratic Party’s tolerance of Southern segregationists, the threat of nuclear war and an apathetic citizenry. They called for mobilizing students and like-minded Americans through “participatory democracy.”


RIP Mr. Hayden. Bow

Hayden might have been the biggest single individual presence to play a role in the formation of "The Great Society" besides Johnson himself.

Do you mean Carl Hayden? Tom Hayden was a founder of the SDS and one of the Chicago 8.
