R.I.P. Apple

I see that Johnny Apple died.

I'm sorry to hear that; it means I am more likely to die sooner rather than later [that's what death is -- a reminder that life is a cruel joke, certain to be whisked away].

Actually, I knew him only as a character in Fear And Loathing on the Campaign Trail 1972, but I was entertained. The passing of veterans of those "innocent" days gone by makes me sad.

I hope he's in the arms of the baby jesus. . .

I loved his reporting and he was a semi-important figure to me: he was an alumnus of the college I graduated from, Columbia University's School of General Studies, the "adult" undergraduate school at Columbia. He went on the G.I. bill, back in the day.

He made me feel better about being a G.S. student, much maligned on the Columbia campus as a "back door".

I met him a couple of times at a couple of functions. Seemed nice enough.
