So the European Championhips in Football are over. France won through in the end, establishing a new record as being the only team to hold both the European and World cups at the same time. Personally I think that they were lucky... but that's another story.
We have been unable to elicit a full report of the Wedding of the Year yet, but hope to do so soon. The problems which this reporter has encountered over the last few days actually accessing h2g2 lead her to believe that TPTB are far too busy to write their report just yet... or else they need to finish the reel of film in their camera!
Another article put on hold for this week is the Survey results. I have been unable to contact Greebo T Cat, but am sure that this will be rectified shortly.
The race for Prez of h2g2 is hotting up. We feature the statements of four hopefuls this week.
There have been several sad deaths this week.
Walter Mattheau has died aged 79. The actor was best known for playing grumpy but loveable slobs. He rose to stardom playing loutish sports writer Oscar Madison in 'The Odd Couple' and made more than 45 films. Among the best known were 'The Front Page', 'The Bad News Bears', 'The Sunshine Boys' and 'The Taking of Pelham 123'. He won an Oscar in 1966 for his part in 'The Fortune Cookie'. He died of a heart attack in Los Angeles
Another sad death reported was that of Joey Dunlop, whom we featured in an article only a few weeks ago. Demon Drawer has written an obituary on this great motor-cycling competitor, and you may also find tributes at the Obituary Pages which we have now established as a permanent link from the POST.
