I wouldn't talk about Hank and juice. His 1973 season was wildly statistically improbable for a 39-year-old. There's very little evidence but steroids and amphetamines were clearly part of the game then. This guy sums up the case well.

I agree - Aaron will always be the HR king to me. Players thought he somehow calibrated his bat for distance - a lot of his dingers dropped 'just' over the fence, like a chip shot hitting the green.

He was beloved by fans and players alike - I've read anecdotes about his class on and off the field. One of the great ones.

"A Perfect Spy" was absolutely amazing, perhaps in part because it used so much of Cornwell's early life and dealings with his shady, larger-than-life father. The paperback copy I bought in '87 had a blurb from Joseph Roth calling it "the English novel since the war."

His works weren't always great. The adaptation of "The Night Manager" with Tom Hiddleston and Hugh Laurie has great pace and pitch but the novel was pretty wooden at times. But "The Spy Who Came in From The Cold" has an ending that punches you in the gut. An amazing achievement for someone just starting out as a novelist.
 
Spot on.  Just re-watching the BBC's 6 part series of "Smiley's people" with the genius Alec Guinness as George.  Brilliant.  Re-watch of "TSWCIFTC" next.  Happy New Year RP family.

was he a denier? i know he suggested economies should not all shut down, but thats not the same as a denier.
regardless, schadenfreude i think not.

So the story on the Right is that he died of a heart attack, not COVID. 

"A perfectly healthy 41-year-old dies of a heart attack following a procedure (undisclosed) while a patient in an ICU following a COVID diagnosis.    The heart attack killed him....not COVID".

Huh?

The reality is that COVID doesn't kill anyone.  It stops your heart, it prevents you from processing oxygen, it causes blood clots...but it isn't THE cause of death. 

As someone who has dealt with this in NJ, it is NEVER the cause of death in here.  It is always a "condition" or "underlying cause" if listed.

If you believe he would still be alive had he not had COVID, then you have to logically support the notion that COVID kill Mr. Letlow.

He has a wife and small children, and they are why those who believe in the value of masks, and isolation, and lockdowns need to stay vocal until we reach some sort of herd immunity from the vaccines.  The disease can't be worse than the cure, but I'm willing to bet his young family would give back every moment of freedom to have him safely home right now.  Sadly, that's not how this works.

The children are 3 and 11 months.


Lots of tweets today about stolen elections.  Nothing about Mr. Letlow.
