Certainly an odd man to erect a statue for ...  but hey! look who is holding the helm of the USA.  We live in odd times.  Refreshingly reassuring to see the silly jerk in there vandalizing the new statue; so some things never change, I ween.  :testsmily:

I am glad he appeals to others the way he did to me.  And, btw, I might have guessed that it'd be you two!  Cheers.

Appealed to me too, but I was too lazy to reply. Sorry.  :-\

Current Affairs / Re: Trump

Well, we've now had a little over a year of this moral cesspool.  He has indeed been the making of CNN (as has been elsewhere suggested), and is an ongoing source of entertainment, interest, and amazement ... even if it courts disaster along the way!

I was amused at watching CNN several days ago, where they had the inevitable panel of pundits, in this case discussing Trump's outrageous exploits, generally.  They considered how this man has managed to avoid facing impeachment action, for his aberrant - not to say illegal - nonsense extends way beyond the meager boundaries crossed by Clinton or Nixon that got them blackballed.  The reason that he hasn't faced impeachment - vouchsafed the pundits - was largely because of the multiplicity and severity of his infractions!  In effect, no-one knows where the heck to start, what with so many, so glaring transgressions of wisdom, law, custom, tact, sense, diplomacy, morality, etc!  And so he steams on as crass as ever, becoming more and more wealthy in the process. 

America and its reputation has indeed been brought low ... and all fully in the glare of the world view.  Moreover, as Trump plunders ahead without seeming to suffer for it, that alone justifies the process and so, becomes at least one example methodology to achieve success!  Egad!

Concur totally.
His books and countless TV and radio appearances were very much part of the media fabric that many of us I grew up with.
For any that don't know, his last radio appearance was in the latest version of Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy.

Current Affairs / Stephen Hawking has died

Stephen Hawking has  died.  For me he was as close to a hero as I am likely to find.  From so many points-of-view, he was an incredible person. Our society is so inundated with hyperbole that an apt description of this would sound run-of-the mill. Besides his brilliant mind, his lively sense of humor and positive outlook on life never seemed to leave him - when most of humanity, in a similar situation, would be wrestling full-time with severe depression. He even appeared on the rather silly (but fun) sitcom The Big Band Theory on several occasions. What a remarkable person he was!
