Intemperate thought of the day

Can we PLEASE stop getting play-by-play updates every time Nelson Mandela gets a chest cold?


  1. It took months for Francisco Franco to die, which is what started the gag line of "Francisco Franco is still dead" after he finally kicked the bucket. This could be shaping up to be the modern equivalent.

    Then, of course, we'll be faced with months of eulogies in the press, like Princess Di.

  2. Oh god.....hours of non-stop retrospectives and eulogies will make me shoot my TV.

  3. It is ridiculous to get progress reports every time some health issue happens to Mandela. I just ignore it and move on.
