    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    I always enjoyed his contributions on R4 greatly. A wonderful, insightful and unbiased observer of the human condition, a great bridge-builder.

    TheDecameron Unicorns fart glitter.

    Indeed, his radio broadcasts on matters spiritual and temporal were excellent. I can still hear his voice. Sorry to learn of his passing.

    That is indeed sad. I'm not Jewish, but I have always admired the wisdom and humanity of Lord Sacks, and I have a number of his books. Big shoes for someone to fill.

    I liked his voice, very powerful, it fair to say when he did 'thought for the day' its the only time I wouldnt switch away.

    A voice I could listen to all day and with such clear a clear and relevant message.

    Truly a sad loss.

    A sad loss. His voice on the radio was always so calm, measured and soothing. RIP.

    Rabbi Sacks's funeral was today (I'm on his mailing list). Reflecting on his life and work, I found this interesting interview:

    A fascinating reminder of how much we owe the Jews.

    Terrible news. He was a brilliant man whose writings and observations are of relevance to all. He will be missed - may he rest in peace.

    This is lovely:

    The story of Man. Utd. and Arsenal is particularly good.
