I liked how they sang and danced at the Mandela Memorial; that's the way to do it! Also how they booed Jacob Zuma- who deserves it. Also how Obama took the opportunity to shake Raul Castro's hand; it was as if he'd been giving thought to Mandiba's way of doing things.
I ordered two books by Colin Wilson from Amazon. I expect many people had the same impulse. I wonder if it's generally the case that an author's sales figures go up immediately after they die. I'd be surprised if it wasn't.
