Been a week for deaths. First Harold Gracey, then Peter Ustinov, and now, Alistair Cooke. I was a fan of Cooke's radio and written work and considered him a great man. Not so many week's ago, I took part in a BBC discussion about the ending of "Letter from America." I was shocked by the contempt the leftists on that programme held for him.."Not to be taken seriously" was one particularly crass comment. By way of redress, have a read of this excellent article...Alistair Cooke was an institution and he will be greatly missed. Sad times.
