Wow, I just had a "Cricket and Boobs" flashback. Whatever happened to that site? It was awesome.

It lives. Check out "UF Writers Elsewhere" on the sidebar.

The BBC's coverage has been phenomenal. They have videos up from today's memorial service at Anfield, the rendition of You'll Never Walk Alone is absolutely bone chilling. Of course there was still a lot of anger, government speakers were heckled for the lack of punishment.

I suggest looking at the picture gallery over there. The one of the little boy with the red rose is heart breaking.

Georger, I never knew you had a heart.

But yeah, the tributes yesterday were all well considered and thoughtful.
