Just leave it there

One of the items on this evening's news was about Luciano Pavarotti, who sadly died on 6th September last year.

So what was the story? Was it about record sales of Nessun Dorma? Was it about the fame he brought to his home village of Modena?

No. It was that he died with twelve pence in his bank account, and was apparently twelve million pounds in debt.

Is this the best that our media can do? Why can't we just remember one of the greatest opera tenors who ever lived, who brought operatic music to a wider audience of millions, and just leave it there?
