Didn't think I'd be moved by this but I seem to keep bubbling.

Got Santanas Milagro ready to play Free all the People ready to play and just ordered Silky Soul by Maze with a great track called Mandela.

Death of icons is always affecting.

I still remember Eastenders when Grant Mitchell bought a load of 'Free Nelson Mandela' t-shirts as one of his moneymaking scams several years after he became president, then amended the wording to 'He's Free, is Nelson Mandela'.

Musically it's gotta be the Special AKA's 'Neslon Mandela'

An interesting notion SRT 'bubbling' away, much like a well seasoned hot pot on the back burner.

Anyway, great a man as he undoubtedly was, NM was 95 after all and retired from politics so his time came, like it has and will for the rest of us. The man warrants dignified respect and acknowledgement sure but tears?

Nuge, I think there is a case - even given that there is bound to be a certain amount of mythology around a person of his stature (is there another?) a reflection on the situation in S.A. before and during his imprisonment, the way he conducted himself, what he achieved and his lasting legacy would be likely to induce tears in many. I feel they are not necessarily for the man though, they are for mankind.

'a person of his stature (is there another?)'

any takers for Dave then?

Had NM done something that fruitloop of an ex-wife of his I'd have respected him even more. As time went on she seemed hellbent on being his polar opposite when it came to both integrity and dignity.
