He went on to sell more than 250m copies of his books worldwide, with a partnership with Quentin Blake as inseparable a marriage of author and illustrator as that between Lewis Carroll and John Tenniel, or AA Milne and EH Shepard. And yet Roald Dahl was also a highly complex character, as the Royal Mint’s decision to scrap a commemorative coin in his honour attests. We’ll tell you what’s true. You can form your own view.

We’re still nearly two months away from the NFL draft, but as the football world debates Kyler Murray’s stature or the merits of hand size in Indianapolis, it’s time to look ahead with our first mock draft of #MockDraftSeason. 1. ARIZONA CARDINALS: Nick Bosa, EDGE, Ohio State There is a serious possibility that this pick could be used on Kyler Murray, who, as Kliff Kingsbury himself has pointed out, would be a perfect fit to usher his Air Raid offense into the NFL.

SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS: Josh Allen, EDGE, Kentucky Allen returned for his senior season at Kentucky and earned himself a whole lot more money in the draft. After expanding his pass rushing repertoire, Allen was basically unstoppable when rushing the quarterback. He fills a huge need on the edge. 3.

The Red Lion was a downtown restaurant where Rochester’s movers and shakers met to eat, drink and frequently hash out business and political deals. The business began in one of Rochester’s best-known buildings and later moved – begrudgingly – to a brand-new skyscraper just a half-mile east. The original restaurant was run by a group that included a former boxer who later became a town supervisor in Wayne County. Squabbles that forced the Red Lion to move filled news accounts for months. Two separate farewell parties were held after the initial closing date was “postponed.” A suburban version of the restaurant was on Monroe Avenue in Brighton, but this story is about the better-known downtown spot. Opened in 1968 in the Powers Building The Red Lion opened in 1968 in the Powers Building at 36. W. Main St., which had been renamed the Executive Office Building.
