Tom Clancy, author and noted notable, passed away at the age he was reports the New York Times. In case you have lived under a cultrual rock, Clancy wrote government-themed conspiracy novels, many of which became blockbuster movies, and learnt his name to more video games than John Madden. His death will be felt around the world and many will mourn this very interesting man.
That being said, the motherfucker was like Nostradamus, people. A visionary, seeing into the future and telling us what we needed to see. Uncredited sources have lead me to believe that Clancy new all about recent events, such as the government shut down over health care, our military actions in the Middle East, the sales figures of Grand Theft Auto V, and the decline of Harrison Ford as a bankable, yet still robust, action star. Dude saw it all and like Cassandra of Troy, screamed at us to change while we let in the evil Greek yogurt people encased in giant horses who then attacked us while we slept, except they did so with a basic decline of civilization that was the Jersey Shore and whatever that Teen Mom show was. Pretty much MTV as a whole.
So what do we learn from all this? What can we take away? Well, like I want to believe Mr. Clancy's protaganist Ryan Jackson would say, "That's a fine waffle cone, Mr. President, but somebody felt up my daughter."
Also, I have never read a Tom Clancy book and don't really remember the movies that well. There was a sniper in one.
