Speaking ill of the dead

Postby MM_Dandy » Tue Jan 12, 2021 6:20 pm

To paraphrase Bette Davis: You should never say bad things about the dead, only good. Sheldon Adelson is dead. Good.

Over the last 15 - 20 years, Adelson spent an enormous amount of time and money attempting to thwart any and all two-state Isreali/Palestinian peace talks. His widow has made it clear that she intends to use his estate to continue meddling in the Middle East peace process. Adelson was 87.

I’ve only been in the shops.

I bicycle right in front of it on a regular basis now, though.
