Where have all the flowers gone?

By
Real Estate Broker with Coldwell Banker Residential

If you've ever wondered about the veracity of the media news that you hear, over the weekend, the mainstream media, including ABC News, believe it or not, announced the death of:


1) 82 year old astronaut Lance Armstrong


2) 82 year old astronaut Neil Young (believe it or not, this one was ABC News!)
and
3) 82 year old Louis Armstrong.

C'mon people!?  Really?  I know that Neil Young often sounds less than alive on his albums, but he's very much alive and only 66 years old, as of this writing.  Lance, who was also in the news this weekend, due to the accusations of doping and the loss of his award status, I suppose I can understand the confusion...

But Louis Armstrong... satchmo... died in 1971... at the age of 69 years old. I'm surprised they even remember his name!

This isn't really that difficult.  Where are the fact-checkers?  Where are the proof readers?  Where are the editors?  Where have all the flowers gone? 

oops, sorry.... I got a little carried away there.

Gay - you gotta get your "infotainment" somewhere, don't ya?

Steve - well aware of that lyric.

Brenda - don't know when the retraction came, if at all.

Larry - those of us who remember Louis (that's Looey, to you uninitiated) do miss him.  But I found that many of the newbies, who didn't know Louis have been introduced to him, since "What a wonderful world" has been making the airwaves.

Oh wow, makes you think that the people writing that copy are less than 30, that's for sure.

What!? When did Satchmo go to the moon? Besides, Audrey Heburn wrote Moon River, not Lance Armstrong. Giant steps are what you take, walking on the moon. Danged confusing, that's what I say.

Richard - that would just be sad.

Tim - dang confusing, indeed.  I think Johnny Mercer will be surprised to learn about Audry, but Sting... now he's confusing, what with that tantric stuff, and all.

Alan, I'm with Lenn. It is truly a sad state we live in when news media cannot even get the names of the deceased correct.
