Stan Musial, Gentlemanly Slugger and Cardinals’ Stan the Man, Dies at 92. I saw Musial play at Ebbets Field against my beloved Brooklyn Dodgers. He was a feared and respected opponent.

Another one of the greats is gone...

He had hoped to be present for today's announcement of the finalists for this year's Van Cliburn piano competition. Sadly he didn't quite make it.

I get up earlier than you.

I'm looking forward to the evening news to see if it's fawning or more critical. She called herself "The Iron Lady". I called her The Marmite Minister, because you either loved her or hated her.

She said there is no such thing as society and championed the individual and the free market. You could make a case that she caused the bank collapse. (If you were facile, like me...)

Although not quite in the same league as Ms. Thatcher, Annette Funicello died of multiple sclerosis. I used to watch her when she was a mouseketeer but I never saw any of the beach party movies (nor do I regret that lapse in my otherwise exemplary youth).

Although they do have one thing in common....dreadful, lingering deaths. MS for Annette Funicello and dementia for Margaret Thatcher....reminders of how much more important good health is over anything else.

Oh, I don't know about that! Unlike Thatcher, I had a huge crush on Annette. I used to sit in front of the telly with my Mouseketeer ears on watching her and Bobby. I mean, Britney who?
