    I have never understood grief related to the death of an elderly public figure.
    Is it due to being reminded of your own mortality? or the deaths and mortality of loved ones?
    Is it sentimentality brought on by the perceived passing of an era?
    Just seeking a perspective...

    I am not sure; as I say, it was unexpected. I believe it relates to love of something, though.

    No, it's true. BBC Radio 4X yesterday dedicated a fair amount of time to the late Glücksbergian.

    That's 4X--you know, the channel that features replays of "Dad's Army" and "Steptoe and Son"...

    The main thrust for now must be to counter the worldwide rise of the grocer's apostrophe for plurals of words ending in vowels. I hope I never see another bunch of banana's.


    It is correct in Dutch. Perhaps devotees should all move to the [Fe]Netherland's[/Fe].
