Sean Hoare: words tend to be inadequate

From Monday’s Manchester Guardian

“Death of Sean Hoare – who was first named journalist to allege Andy Coulson knew of hacking – not being treated as suspicious.”

Does anyone here remember David Kelly?

From Wikipedia:

“David Christopher Kelly, CMG (14 May 1944 – 17 July 2003) was a British scientist and expert on biological warfare, employed by the British Ministry of Defence, and formerly a United Nations weapons inspector in Iraq. He came to public attention in July 2003 when an unauthorised discussion he had off the record with a BBC journalist, Andrew Gilligan—about the British government’s dossier on weapons of mass destruction in Iraq—was cited by the journalist and led to a major controversy. Kelly’s name became known to the media as Gilligan’s source, and he was called to appear on 15 July before the parliamentary foreign affairs select committee, which was investigating the issues Gilligan had reported. Kelly was questioned aggressively about his actions. He was found dead two days later.”

‎”Lord Hutton also decided that evidence related to the death, including the post-mortem report and photographs of the body, should remain classified for 70 years.”

‎”In October 2010, the postmortem—including the pathologist’s 14-page report and the six-page toxicology report—was made public, confirming the conclusion of the Hutton report. Powers continues to maintain that questions remain about the amount of blood found at the scene and the number of pills taken, but Blon has said he is satisfied Kelly killed himself. He told a newspaper: ‘Any one of the injuries or disease processes identified—had it existed by itself—would not have been sufficient in itself to cause death. When you assemble it together, you get a different picture… The information provided satisfies me that this was suicide.'”

From Jenny Holzer, Truisms:

a single event can have infinitely many interpretations
abuse of power comes as no surprise
even your family can betray you
ideals are replaced by conventional goals at a certain age
morals are for little people
when something terrible happens people wake up
words tend to be inadequate
