I agree. Inchcock had an engrossing tale to tell, and he wrote in such an entertaining way. He didn’t need to make up ridiculous and unfunny tales about famous people. ( Kardashians have fat asses, etc ) I miss his contributions here.

I agree. The sheer volume of dross written about celebrities, in the forlorn hope that they will generate Googleclicks, is depressing. Writing from personal experience is often much funnier than straining and churning out endless shite about the Kardashians, token American sports stars, or the myriad of unfunny situations Trump is forced into.

Maybe JO was right about the old days...
