Chitty Chatty Bang Bang

Na ‘n lang siekbed, het die pasiënt vandag, 22 Julie 2008, om 16:14 gesterf.

Reaksie op die nuus stroom van oraloor in.

Hier volg enkele reaksies van prominente persoonlikhede.

W.H. Auden: “Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone, prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone, silence the pianos and with muffled drum, bring out the coffin, let the mourners come.”

Voltaire: “He was a great patriot, a humanitarian, a loyal friend – provided, of course, that he really is dead.”

Mae West het eens oor die pasiënt opgemerk: “A hard man is good to find.”

By die aanhoor van die nuus, het Elie Wiesel heel filosofies opgemerk: “The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it’s indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it’s indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it’s indifference.”

En Tracy Chapman het versoek: “Will the crowd disperse? I think we all could use some sleep.”

Maar niemand kon die heersende stemming by die aanhoor van die nuus beter opgesom het as Transvision Vamp nie:

En hoe kan mens Douglas Adams vergeet?

“So long, and thanks for all the fish.”

Ciao
