A slight aside, and reaction.

George Best is close to death.

There is an image of Mr Best burnt deep in my mind - a young man, playing fantastic football.
As he comes to the end of his life, I feel a loss: I am not a great lover of the game (I prefer cricket), but still, there is an emotional kick coming - and I am sure there will be tears close to the surface.

Why do we react like this to events in the lives of people we do not know?

Each a part of the maine?

Ask not for whom the bell tolls - it tolls for me.
