V.S. Naipul-https://www.theguardian.com/books/2018/aug/11/vs-naipaul-nobel-prize-winning-british-author-dies-aged-85

One his best: "A Bend in the River" About central Africa, and colonialism. He was a visionary who foresaw what would happen to African countries once Britain was ousted by uprisings, and liberation moves.

 

A note on the text

"A Bend in the River" is set in central Africa, yet Naipaul claims he knew very little about this part of the world when I settled down to write I had travelled widely and it might have been said that there was nothing clear in my head.

Aretha Franklin, whose impassioned, riveting voice made her a titan of American music, has died after a battle with advanced pancreatic cancer, her publicist told the Associated Press. She was 76.

Franklin was the loftiest name in the rich history of Detroit music and one of the transcendent cultural figures of the 20th Century. Raised on an eclectic musical diet of gospel, R&B, classical and jazz, she blossomed out of her father's Detroit church to become the most distinguished female black artist of all time, breaking boundaries while placing nearly 100 hits on Billboards R&B chart 20 of them reaching No. 1.

Fourteen! Astounding! She will be missed by every one of us!

The list of awards she earned is astounding, to say the least!

Last time I saw Burt on TV, he was lookin' like he'd already died, and was dug up for one last interview. Well I guess this is it for Burt!

Yeah, I saw him one night on Stephen Colbert, I believe, it doesn't seem that long ago, and he seemed like he wasn't really firing on all cylinders anymore.

That can happen when you're in your 80's. Always liked Burt Reynolds in the movies.
His choice of Lonnie Anderson. Every man in TV land wanted to do Lonnie Anderson.

"Snippy" realizes now that he never realized that Burt Reynolds was in Deliverance. Because, "Snippy" has never seen Deliverance.
