Selfie-sobs for celebrities
W&D is a sensitive man, who closely identifies with "Never send to know for whom the bell tolls/It tolls for thee" .
But public outcries of wailing for a celebrity who recently shuffled off this mortal coil seem to be more about the feelings of crier than the worthiness of the deceased.
"Gutted that Blogs has died..." Good grief.
W&D sees a problem with more and more celebrities of pensionable age: the swamping of sport in the news with news of the deluge of selfie-sobs for celebrities.
