The passing of Stan Lee, He was a very nice man I meet for the junket of spider-man. I interview him at the four seasons hotel. He was gracious of a gentleman. I will always think of him as a very creative individual who had a great deal of talent.
Former President George H.W. Bush dies; oversaw end of Cold War
Bush, the 41st president of the United States who possessed one of the most impressive resumes in American political history, also routed Saddam Hussein’s Iraqi army but lost his chance for a second term after breaking a no-new-taxes pledge.
“Many of my memories are linked to him,” said Mikhail Gorbachev, the last leader of the Soviet Union, with whom Bush signed a strategic arms reduction treaty that scaled back the two countries’ nuclear arsenals. Bush was the father of former President George W. Bush, who served two terms in the White House in the 2000s, and former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, who unsuccessfully sought the 2016 Republican nomination for president. Like his sons, he was a Republican.
His death came seven months after that of his wife, former first lady Barbara Bush, to whom he was married for 73 years. He was admitted to a Houston hospital with a blood infection that led to sepsis a day after her funeral in April.
