Ann Barr, co-author of The Official Sloane Ranger Handbook dies at 85. http://www.theguardi...may/05/ann-barr

Does anyone find that to be the most cringeworthy pun-type nickname ever? Sloane Ranger? I mean... ha ha ha? 

 

It's just one of those things that must have seemed big and clever to all the people who liked it (and still like it) but now to younger people it just seems awful. You know, like Casablanca.

Guenter Grass, author of The Tin Drum, dies at 87. http://www.dailymail...m--dies-87.html

In his younger days, Grass was in the Waffen SS, a fact which he managed to keep secret for quite a while.
After that he had a hard job maintaining his status as honorary citizen of Gdansk.

 

So someone grassed on him?
