Robert Hardy Dead at 91

One of the finest actors I have seen as well as an educated raconteur and world's foremost expert on the British longbow. A lion of the stage and screen, perhaps best known in this country as Siegfried Farnon.

His Winston Churchill, in several iterations, was extraordinary, and his range was broad.

I suspect those of us with grandchildren, or children of the right age, will remember him for his recurring role as the Minister of Magic in several of the Harry Potter Movies.

May his soul rest in heaven.
The most improper job of any man, even saints, is bossing other men. Not one in a million is fit for it, and least of all those who seek the opportunity.

Wherever we go in the world we find other men speaking the same language...dreaming the same dreams. And one of the big four - brownie, or brookie, cutthroat or rainbow - is the cause of it all.
