Dying idols

April 21, 2016

David Bowie. Alan Rickman. Prince.

It seems like beloved celebrities are dropping like flies. I’ve heard people say that this is a terrible year, that our cultural heroes are all passing away.

Maybe. Though it occurs to me that, if that’s so, it’s only because we have more heroes now. A million channels. A million stations. A million ways great people can connect with us.

That’s not such a bad problem to have, even if we have to lose them all eventually. More has its downsides. Its upsides are greater.

As always, thank you for using my Amazon Affiliate link (info).
