  • Raymond Briggs, author of "The Snowman" and other children's books at 88.

    The Snowman was made into a video and has been a Christmas staple in this household for 30 years. I think it's on YT. Just skip the David Bowie version.

        You know there's a "sequel"? Snowman and the Snowdog. Cute but a typical sequel that does not live up to the original

                            • He wasn't perfect (his handling of Chornobyl, his attempt at prohibition that tanked something like a third to half of their remaining economy and resulting drop in tax collections). However, compared to the hardline fossils who came before him, he cared about the people. He knew market-style reforms were needed to foster innovation and advance their lagging technology and he knew it was time to let the military empire go to some extent.
