You're fixated on Jimmy Bloody Savile, to an unsettling level it seems. You mentioned him 4 times for crying out loud. Maybe you admired him?! Maybe you're a bit nuts?! Maybe both! And btw the majority of people reading New Times have have never heard of Jimmy Savile and why would they?

O Captain! my Captain! our fearful trip is done, The ship has weather’d every rack, the prize we sought is won, The port is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting, While follow eyes the steady keel, the vessel grim and daring; But O heart! heart! heart! O the bleeding drops of red, Where on the deck my Captain lies, Fallen cold and dead.

@danzigsdaddy Actually, he'd had a long history of depression and drug abuse.  He used to party with Beluchi....

@SpottedDick my apologies, i meant COULD be happy............everyone knows of the sad clown.  i just find it odd how some people who can enlighten others are sometimes completely unable themselves to come out of their depression even though they find it so easy to do for others.   (by the way.......tears of a clown? ......good reference, wish i had remembered it first)
