PostDeath of Andrea Camilleri, Author (Edward Jajko, USA, 07/24/19 6:41 am)
There have been deaths of other notable people in recent days. I would like to acknowledge the passing of the Italian writer Andrea Camilleri, at 93 years of age. He was already 69 when he created the character Commissario Salvo Montalbano, a fictional village in Sicily, and a host of other memorable characters in a score or more of books in Italian and Sicilian dialect. I have more than 20 of the TV series eating up space on the house DVR. I can't let them go; they are a delight to watch and listen to. Requiescas in pace Signore Andrea.
JE comments: July has been a brutal month for notable deaths. In addition to Camilleri and John Paul Stevens, we've lost Ross Perot and Lee Iacocca. All were mavericks in a sense--especially the last two.
