The Guardian: So long and thanks for all the fish. “I am sorry to have to inform readers of the Guardian’s long-running Ask Jack column that its much-loved author, Jack Schofield, died on Tuesday. Jack was taken to hospital on Friday night following a heart attack and died on Tuesday afternoon.” I wrote for Jack several times in the early 2000s. He always had a kind word and I always looked forward to working with him. I’ll miss him.
