Olof palme

edit: No wait, I lied. But uh, it's the same year.


Isn't every year the same year as your birthday? Oh and I'm not sure who died on mine (sep 4) but I think the worst day of the great fire of London was on sep 4 so I'll say some Londoners.

edit: Steve Irwin was the 4th wasn't he?
Those who have crossed
With direct eyes, to death's other Kingdom
Remember us - if at all - not as lost
Violent souls, but only
As the hollow men
The stuffed men.

Yeah... that's what I meant, and not that he died on the same year I was born.
