Sen John McCain dies

He refused further treatment for his condition.

Second person to do this and have it reported, the first one was a former sportsman and papers unfairly slagged him off for “giving up.”

John wasn’t a fan of Trumpy, good on him!

Yeah, compared to Trumpy, a saint, philosopher and leader, that is why I put the RIP notice up. And didn’t dodge military service.

That non–actor and screen tough guy, John Wayne, did not serve in WWII, would disrupt his career. Elvis Presley, whose “music” I detest at least served and that I can and do respect. Didn’t try to get young American men to sign up to fight in Viet Nam which non–actor Wayne did.

Defended Obama too, when that stupid woman called him a Muslim Arab.

McCain took the mic off her and told her she was wrong, and that Obama was a good man.

And that was at one of McCain's campaign rallies.

He wrangled respect out of me through being a truly honourable man with actual integrity.

Many blessings on those who love him.

Burt Reynolds, beloved Hollywood legend, dies at the age of 82.

So said the email.

Occasionally something like Cannonball was entertaining when I wanted some distraction.
