    Authors Last A Long Time, But....

    Larry McMurtry wrote Lonesome Dove. Brokeback Mountain was written by Annie Proulx. Spoke too soon. McMurtry did help adapt Proulx’s short story into a screenplay. Mea culpa. Though he is much more famous for Lonesome Dove which was turned into a mini-series.

    The President's Men

    No he was not indicted and I don’t believe he was ever implicated in any particular wrong doing in regard to Watergate. Point of interest, with the exception of Jean Kennedy Smith, there are now no living presidential siblings until George H. W. Bush’s.

    The Cardinals Of The Roman Catholic Church

    Wrong thread. This belongs in Cleric or Relic. This guy is neither a Cardinal nor Catholic.

    Political Frailty

    You beat me to it. Wofford’s death brings the number of living former U.S. senators that served in World War II down to five. Some of them are famous in their own right. Hollings (SC) - 97 Oldest living former senator Buckley (NY) - 96 Brother of William F. Buckley and one of the few successful third party senatorial candidates Dole (KS) - 96 Presidental nominee ‘96 VP nominee ‘76 Evans (WA) - 93 Warner (VA) - 92 Last living husband of Elizabeth Taylor

    I thought it was him when you posted the original photo. It wasn’t until a second look that I realized it wasn’t him.

    Hillary Clinton

    Nah. He’s just struggling to read the program. He’s a great advertisement for the Wharton School.

    Gloria Vanderbilt

    Vanderbilt. If you’re going to create a thread for no discernible reason at least spell their name right.

    Political Frailty

    Senator Walter Huddleston of Kentucky dead at 92. He was defeated for re-election by Mitch McConnell. This also brings the number of living Senators that are veterans of the Second World War down to six. https://www.courier-journal.com/story/news/2018/10/16/former-senator-walter-dee-huddleston-kentucky-dies/1657899002/

    When I saw this thread bump I was hoping for at least a hospitalization. Click bait disappoints again.
