This House notes... posted by Richard SeymourAstonishingly, the Bill Hicks web-page now advertises the following posthumous endorsement:
"That this house notes with sadness the 10th anniversary of the death of Bill Hicks,
on February 26th 1994, at the age of 33; recalls his assertion that his words would be a bullet in the heart of consumerism, capitalism and the American Dream; and mourns the passing of one of the few people who may be mentioned as being worthy of inclusion with Lenny Bruce in any list of unflinching and painfully honest political philosophers."
- Stephen Pound MP; Parliamentary House of Commons
Did you hear that correctly? Stephen fucking Pound. Although Bill was an Anglophile, I can't imagine a better way to torture him in his grave than to lay on him the approbation of the House of Commons. Still, its nice to know he has a sense of humour.
