Just realized it's been a year since LPGA golfer, Dawn Coe Jones, died of cancer.

Dawn was an elementary school classmate. I still remember the names of most of that neighbourhood gang though I haven't seen any of them since moving to Vancouver in early 1970. I think Dawn was the only one of that group who made it to celebrity status.

John McCain. It takes a specific kind of achievement for people to forget the man crashed four planes, but bringing Sarah Palin -and by proxy her mental inferior, Donald Trump- to prominence in United States politics fits the bill.

Burt Reynolds. Here I present two pieces from the dearly departed The Dissolve (RIP) which illuminate what made him a Movie Star.

Carlos Ezquerra, he of 2000 A.D. and JUDGE DREDD fame. Watch FUTURE SHOCK! THE STORY OF 2000 A.D. on Amazon Prime or the format of your choice to gain an appreciation for the legacy of this man and his comic-book-making cohorts.
