Sunday 19-6-11: sic transit

In the news today: the death of Clarence Clemons, and Amy Winehouse being booed off the stage in Belgrade.
Also today: Mrs Michaels told me that she had had to explain to her daughter who Jimi Hendrix and Kurt Cobain were. I speculated to Mr & Mrs Michaels and Miss KB that in another ten years, young people may not know who Amy Winehouse was:
“One morning she will be found dead in the gutter, and that will be that.”
The Old Man died six months ago today.
