John Glenn, R. I. P.

The Columbus Dispatch: His legend is other-worldly and now, in his 95th year, that’s where John Glenn has gone. 

An authentic hero and genuine American icon, Glenn died this afternoon surrounded by family at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center in Columbus after a remarkably healthy life spent almost from the cradle with Annie, his beloved wife of 73 years, who survives.

As a friend put it "This year so far was truly brutal" and that was around September or August. Celebrities gone and other events that made for a tough year.

Amazing that this man, J. Glenn, was age 95 - that is a real legacy.
