I have been researching the author of 'The Lament of the Irish Emigrant'. Helen, Lady Dufferin,
and came across this little gem about her grandson.
                                                                           Don.

Public Records Office, N.Ireland.

The 4th Marquess of Dufferin and Ava (1909-1945)

The 4th Marquess's political career was interrupted, first by the war, and then by his early death.

John Ashcroft lost to a dead candidate in Missouri. I don't know who the 4th Marquis ran against.

Donald Rumsfeld also lost an election to a dead man. Some voters are intelligent.

Please post the source for your "gem."



You will get a better responce by not labeling it BS.

Guest,
          I didn't post for the sake of response, though I welcome yours, or that of anyone else,
just to share my feeling of bewilderment at death being regarded only as an 'interruption'
to someone's career. As for labelling the post BS, since it is only marginally concerned with
music, I feel that that is the correct heading. You'll find the source here in the second paragraph.
                         Don.

Well, true, it is an interruption, but a rather serious one. It is really tricky to re-incarnate in your own line of succession, and requires a very intense focus. Not the sort of intensity one associates with the peers, at all.

Crickets, however, I'm told, seem to manage it quite well. I have an invasion of them at the moment and several look very familiar indeed.
