10th president of the United States John Tyler still has a living grandson.

I've heard that one. Crazy.

From what I've read, the males in Tyler's family typically had children very late in life. There were two grandsons still living until a couple of years ago. It almost boggles the mind that someone born in 1790 would have living progeny just two generations removed.

He was quite the consequential figure in politics, for reasons both good and bad.

Arguably the most powerful secretary of state in US history (certainly since WW2).

 

Powerful, yet a terrible person.

Kissinger had an incredible life and career. He served in military intelligence during WWII and was on the ground during the Battle of the Bulge. His winning the Nobel Peace Prize in 1973 for his role in the Paris Peace talks was so controversial he tried to give back the award. He actually served as the Chair of the 9/11 commission in 2002.

In the Sistine Chapel, Gore Vidal once came upon Henry Kissinger “gazing thoughtfully” at the Hell section of Michelangelo’s Last Judgment. “Look,” said Vidal to a friend, “he’s apartment hunting.”

Yankees posted their heartfelt condolences about the passing of Kissinger on their twitter. "Profoundly saddened" "Deeply missed" "Lifelong friend".

 

That'll go over well.

Sandra Day O'Connor, first female Supreme Court Justice dies at 93.

A swing vote on many blockbuster court cases, which helped make her one of the most powerful women in the USA at that time.

I was going to joke about waiting for John Riggins's statement, but here's John Riggins 's statement:

I am so saddened by the passing of the Supreme Court’s First Lady. Back in ’85 our chance meeting at the White House Correspondents Dinner became an international event. And, over the years our paths would occasionally cross, which usually led to a memorable occasion. One that I recall was at the Olney Theater, where after my performance, she came up on stage and presented me with a dozen roses, and I autographed a football for her. Another was at the Alfalfa Club in the Washington Hilton about ten years or so ago. She was the out going President of the club, and during her farewell speech she told the audience she had something to say that she’d been wanting to say for years. She then uttered, “Loosen up Johnny, baby!”, and she brought the house down.

Here’s to you Sandy, baby, you’ll always be the greatest!

Not a recent death, obviously, but today marks the 43rd anniversary of the murder of John Lennon.
