John Mortimer 1923 - 2009

Writer, lawyer, creator of Rumpole of the Bailey, and all round English good egg, John Mortimer died in his sleep yesterday.

I found out from Stephen Fry, on Twitter.

Nothing like seeing some of your childhood TV favourites turn up in the Obituaries column to make you get serious about leading a more healthy lifestyle.

I think Mr Mortimer would be very sad to learn that his demise caused you to consider leading a healthy life style. In fact, he is probably itching to get in his grave so that he can turn in it.

Vicus, you are a wiser man than I, and so much better at being cruel.
