No fairytale ending

I found this story very sad. Sad in that a tremendous talent was taken from us all in tragic circumstances, and tragic that her family have never obtained the justice - and closure - they sought.

Here is Kirsty as we all remember her:



And again:



Incidentally, in case any of you didn't know, Kirsty's father was Ewan MacColl, doyen of the English folk revival and composer of Dirty Old Town and The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face. He left Kirsty's mother and ran off with Peggy Seeger (Pete's half-sister). Which is quite a story in itself.

Found this blog looking for a Gary Larson cartoon.

Prefer the slower country version of There's a Guy.......
