The passing of Dolores O'Riordan takes from us the pure and earnest voice of one of the most powerful songs ever created to address human pain and loss as the cost of violence in the name of political end. The stupidity of war, in particular the irreparable harm it brings to children and families, is ever present, and grows more indiscriminate, more inescapable with each passing day.

Let us not forget the message of "Zombie", and the fact that it was created by a mother upon seeing the grief and pain experienced by another mother who had lost a child in the name of political warfare.

RIP, Dolores. You have moved on, but your creation and its meaning remain with us, now stronger than ever. Your song brought the horror of war into our hearts and minds in a way that may have otherwise been overlooked. I believe I can safely state that millions of us are walking around today with your strident and heartfelt words echoing in our thoughts, reminding us that we, as a species, need to do better.

We should all have such a legacy.

Pioneering, inspiring snow-sports filmmaker Warren Miller, 93, dies at Orcas Island home

Man.

I watched so many of his films when I was a kid. I even became a Tahoe snow bum the year I turned 21, working (and skiing my brains out) at Kirkwood.

For one glorious season, I lived the dream.

Thanks Warren.

Ikea founder Ingvar Kamprad dies in Sweden at 91.

I understand that his funeral has been delayed while they work out how to put his coffin together.

I've actually met Jerry Butler. I remember him as a nice, friendly sort of man. Not plagued with a huge ego like many of his peers.

First saw him in Suspect, with Cher & Dennis Quaid. One of my favorite actors. Loved him as 'Martin Crane' on Frasier.

Mickey Jones has died, after a "lengthy, but, unspecified illness". He was 76.

Drummer for Kenny Rogers & The First Edition, and Bob Dylan on his 1966 world tour, Jones was a character actor who acted in almost every TV show made in the 70s and 80s.

Fuck lengthy, unspecified illness.

John Perry Barlow- wrote some Grateful Dead lyrics, some poetry, founded EFF and wrote Principles of Adult Behavior. Dead at 70.

1. Be patient. No matter what.
2. Donít badmouth: Assign responsibility, not blame. Say nothing of another you wouldnít say to him.
3. Never assume the motives of others are, to them, less noble than yours are to you.
4. Expand your sense of the possible.
5. Donít trouble yourself with matters you truly cannot change.
6. Expect no more of anyone than you can deliver yourself.
7. Tolerate ambiguity.
8. Laugh at yourself frequently.
9. Concern yourself with what is right rather than who is right.
10. Never forget that, no matter how certain, you might be wrong.
11. Give up blood sports.
12. Remember that your life belongs to others as well. Donít risk it frivolously.
13. Never lie to anyone for any reason. (Lies of omission are sometimes exempt.)
14. Learn the needs of those around you and respect them.

17. Praise at least as often as you disparage.
18. Admit your errors freely and soon.
