Lord Wedgwood - news of his death
The obituaries are beginning to appear in many newspapers and news services around the world. Here is our favorite so far. Philly.com has done a nice job of telling about Piers. He and Jean were an integral part of the Philadelphia area social scene, their primary residence being there, Jean's hometown. Unfortunately the press release from Barlaston, and found by me through Yahoo.com's financial news feed, has several informative paragraphs about Piers, and then a commercial ending describing WWRD. Poor taste and unnecessary. Anyone who cares that Piers has died will already know who and what WWRD is..... this information was provided by the Wedgwood Waterford Royal Doulton PR channels, what a shame they can't be more respectful of a person who gave his life for the company - poor form folks!
