Good point, AUJ & Ram. I'll go further. If I was macca famous and my wife had passed, I'd make sure no one knew where and I'd also make sure that the press was mislead, since all they would do with the info would be to camp out for a death watch or a greiving widower/kids photo shot. I don't care who carried it out GB or macca. They both were correct in doing so.
The entertainment press just blows. Blood suckers. I'm glad GB lied about the info--it's not "Nixion" if it's doesn't have anything to do with the political process. Good job Geoff and Macca.
