John McCain

Senator McCain, the former Vietnam POW and Presidential candidate passed away at the weekend – a man, who, regardless of his sometimes problematic Republican aims, was clearly a man who operated with a set of values and human integrity. In tribute then, here’s a classic piece by The Washington Post entitled: ‘What Donald Trump was up to while John McCain was a prisoner of war.

Neil Simon

The US playwright Neil Simon has also passed away. Now if you think gender identity issues are a pure millennial phenomenon, then take a look at his work. The Pulitzer Prize winner had an unbelievable comic and dramatic touch for stage and screen comedies. The Odd Couple is our particular favourite, here’s a clip as a tribute to a great man:
