The Passing Parade: Cheap Shots from a Drive By Mind

"...difficile est saturam non scribere. Nam quis iniquae tam patiens urbis, tam ferreus, ut teneat se..." " is hard not to write Satire. For who is so tolerant of the unjust City, so steeled, that he can restrain himself... Juvenal, The Satires (1.30-32)

WILL THE CORRECT RICHARD SIMMONS, RIP: I wish to report that the World Almanac for 2004 has killed off Richard Simmons. He is firmly ensconced in the Entertainment Personalities of the Past, being wedged between Alistair Sim, the greatest Scrooge of all, who died in 1976, and the great Nina Simone, who passed away this year. I am sure that we are all sad to hear of Mr Simmon's premature passing, as is, no doubt, Mr Simmons, since he isn't dead yet. The World Almanac has confused the Sultan of Sweating with the Oldies with the actor of the same name who played Sgt Preston of the Mounties on TV back in the Fifties. One trusts that this error will be rectified in future editons.
