Wry & Dry

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" [4].

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.
