The erroneous date has been in the article long enough to have clogged any search results quite thoroughly, but there are several reliable outside sources confirming the date of 4 October: Telegraph, Times, New York Times (needs login). I suspect the date of 9 August comes from a misreading of the date on the Telegraph obituary; 08/10/2004 means, to a British publisher, 8 October, 2004 (a Friday)—but to an American or, apparently, a Polish reader, it means 10 August, 2004 (a Tuesday). —Charles P.(Mirv) 21:54, 19 January 2006 (UTC) Micheal Grant did NOT die because he is going to my school on FRIDAY OCTOBER 1ST —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 15:39, 28 September 2010 (UTC)
