 Breaking News Tom Clancy:  dead at the age of 66


One of our friends sent me an email about an hour or so ago that Tom Clancy passed away today.  This made me reflect.


In my observation very few people like to talk about death. It is not a pleasant subject. We all think we have a long time and it is far away.


The older we get to more it becomes a reality that we are not immortal. Hence we should be mentally and emotionally prepared that it is an inevitability and the question is just when.


Needless to say famous, infamous or just ordinary we can die without a moment’s notice from various causes, accidents, being at the wrong place at the wrong time, health reasons and I could go on and on.

Ironically I was just about to start one of his books yesterday. This one he has written a while back “The Cardinal of the Kremlin” work and life stepped in and needless to say did not start reading it as planned.


So getting your house in order one should not postpone because it can happen anytime. Just as I tend to procrastinate I am sure many of you are out there as well.


Many o f you might have read or seen “The Hunt for Red October” this one probably is been one of his most well known novels.  President Ronald Reagan probably helped him get to be on the best seller list. There was a photo of the late President holding the book in his hand as he was crossing the lawn at the white house. IF any of you have this picture feel free to post it in the comments. I just remember it clear as day! (Ironically I lent this book out and never got it back) On a side note I remember seeing him drive on Sunset Blvd in a convertible with his trademark Admiral Baseball Cap.
