VERITY LUSH: Spending squillions to point out the blindingly obvious

Have your say

Of course one of the things that caught the attention of the world last week was the death of Robin Williams. I’m not going to add my speculation about how and why to that of countless others.

I found it outstanding how many people felt compelled to share their sadness at the death of someone who had given so many joy through his comedy on stage and screen.

It was a very touching thing to see and to know that even though this man has died, he will live on through his work.

Likewise, screen siren Lauren Bacall will be remembered for her work, and for the entertainment she gave during her long life.

It just goes to show that the hows and the whys are not as important as the legacy that’s left when people die.
