There used to be a wonderful Liberace museum in Las Vegas. Sadly closed now.
It had a selection of his pianos and outfits. Had to be seen to be believed. I was only talking about it today with the Tesco man who was hoping to go to Vegas later in the year. As some of you know I worked for a year at Uni of Nevada which is just outside the city.

They do have a sinister look with those slitty green eyes against solid black fur.

Im glad to see all these alternative funerals with people in bright clothes and bonkas coffin designs. You can even get leopard print ones. Also people having DIY funerals.

The funeral industry needs to be turned on its head. I can see that happening more and more as people refuse to pay those disgusting prices. They are a waste of money.

One one of those "you cant pay we'll take it away" programs the woman had her life ruined by the cost of her father's funeral. If she had refused and walked away the local council would have paid.

I just quoted what I'd read, I wasn't going to nit pick. If the info is wrong then I apologise.  Have a look on here, this will keep you busy  Law Enforcement Line of Duty Deaths in 2020
If you click, for instance, the 45 deaths through gunfire, you'll see that they are from all over the US. Chicago isn't mention on the page you linked to or on the pages listed as having gunfire casualties. Sorry to nitpick, but the difference between zero and 79 is, percentage wise, large and as a defence for the officer's actions quite different. Is this how we report the news now, just grab a figure out of the air then apologise is someone notices it's fake?

Just for interest sake, turns out that, of the 10 officers who died in the line of duty in Illinois, 9 are listed as dying from Covid 19.

Good to know all those hard working city folk are now even richer now than they were when the pandemic started just like the rest of us. Oh wait...

Life is better when you have moved out of London and have a London Pension, 2 daughters, 2 sons in law 4 granddaughters and 2 doggies.
