Damn! I'm Feeling Old!

There was David Bowie, and now Glenn Fry - among other artist that are deceased. Keith Richards died long ago and has not yet caught up with himself.
What most 21st Century Americans simply do not grasp is that the Constitution and Bill of Rights were not written to to give rights to the citizens of our then-new nation, but was instead written to tightly constrain the federal government.

...Yeah, but you haven't been doing drugs and consuming large quantities of alcohol for the past 40 years.

My ex-wife, essentially a tea-totaller, died recently of cirrhosis of the liver at age 74. She was definitely not dissipated in any way.
My father died at age 67 (about), also of cirrhosis of the liver, to achieve which he had first to drink heavily for more than 40 years. He also had emphysema from an equal amount of time smoking two packs a day.

Yeah, I saw it on the evening news.

Strange days indeed.
Most peculiar mama!
