Robin Cook (1946-2005)
Robin Cook died yesterday at the age of only 59. He had a heart attack while on a walking holiday. To be honest I really didn't know much about him. I knew who he was and that was about it. Then when he left the government because of the war in Iraq I paid attention. It's not easy to stand up for what you believe in if it means going against (in his case) your party. I truly admired him for that. My thoughts are with his family.
