Charlie Gard 2016-17 RIP. "Just one week shy of his first birthday, Charlie died in hospice, as mandated by courts which rejected the parents' wishes to take their son home to die with his family." Heath care, nyet. Control, да.

Penny Chenery, 95, owner/breeder of the greatest racehorse of all time, Secretariat. Won the last leg of the triple crown (1973), the Belmont Stakes, by 31 lengths. A record that still stands.

Connie Hawkins, professional basketball player. He played for the Pittsburgh Rens (huh?) of the ABL, Pittsburgh Pipers (ABA), the Harlem Globetrotters and later for Phoenix Suns, Lakers and Hawks of the NBA. He was initially banned from NBA due to being falsely accused of point shaving at the University of Iowa. Was the precursor to Dr. J's style on the hardwood. Develop the hesitation hook shot.

Note: "Pittsburgh-based attorneys David and Roslyn Litman filed an anti-trust lawsuit in November 1966 on Hawkins’ behalf against the NBA for its ban on their client" (via Post Gazette).
