Following on from the “stop dying” thread and thinking about last weeks passing of Kirk Douglas made me wonder “whose funeral would get major coverage?”. Not including our own Queen or member of our royal family as this would be covered 24/7 by everyone but who is the next big one?
George Bush died last year and the coverage seemed more about Trump’s invitation to stay away than mourning of a US President.
For me there doesn’t seem to be so many people like Mother Theresa or any great popes waiting for the masses to weep and wail about, no more Nelson Mandela’s for the world to stop.
Kobe Bryant passed only two weeks ago but mister basketball made a very small ripple. Kirk Douglas is only missed by close family and friends.
Are we all waiting for Donald Trump to slip off this mortal coil so we can have a proper wake? I know I am!
