The Daily Goodbye
Garry Shider, 56, funk music pioneer and director of of George Clinton's Parliament and Funkadelic bands, died June 16. He had brain and lung cancer. For his habit of wearing a loincloth onstage, the Newark Star-Ledger reports, Mr. Shider earned the nickname "Diaperman."
Film critic and Wake Forest University professor Peter Brunette, 66, died June 16 of a heart attack while on assignment at the Taormina Film Festival in Italy. He wrote articles for the Boston Globe and the New York Times and was the author of seven books of film history and theory.
The Kronen Zeitung has about 3 million readers in a country of just over 8 million. Its widespread readership in Austria makes it a powerful voice -- and made Mr. Dichand a powerful political player.
