It’s also kind of amazing that he made it to 81:
Jones’s identity was closely tied to his alcoholism. One of the best-known stories of Jones’ drinking days happened when he was married to his second wife, Shirley Corley. Jones recalled Shirley making it physically impossible for him to travel to Beaumont, located 8 miles away, and buy liquor. Because Jones would not walk that far, she would hide the keys to each of their cars they owned before leaving. She did not, however, hide the keys to the lawn mower. Jones recollects being upset at not being able to find any keys before looking out the window and at a light that shone over their property. He then described his thoughts, saying: “There, gleaming in the glow, was that ten-horsepower rotary engine under a seat. A key glistening in the ignition. I imagine the top speed for that old mower was five miles per hour. It might have taken an hour and a half or more for me to get to the liquor store, but get there I did.”
In her 1979 autobiography, former wife Tammy Wynette recalled waking at 1 a.m. to find her husband gone: “I got into the car and drove to the nearest bar 10 miles away. When I pulled into the parking lot there sat our rider-mower right by the entrance. He’d driven that mower right down a main highway. He looked up and saw me and said, `Well, fellas, here she is now. My little wife, I told you she’d come after me.’”

This question is purely rhetorical: it is inconceivable that anyone will fill George Jones’s shoes.
Naming your product “Moonshot” is marginally better than, but functionally equivalent to, naming your product “Our Executives Are Compensated Largely in Vega.”
The name is also bad because it is impossible to read or hear “moonshot” without substituting in “money shot.”
“Imagine a world without borders—where FII is equal to NRI is equal to FVCI and they all are QFI! And the only discrimination is between portfolio and non-portfolio investments. If Finance Minister P Chidambaram is to be believed—this dream could soon become a reality! After all, not one but two committees have been set up to map the mirage. One by SEBI under Former Cabinet Secretary KM Chandrasekhar to look at harmonising portfolio investment routes - and another by the finance ministry under current Economic Affairs Secretary Arvind Mayaram to define what distinguishes FDI from FII.”
“While the exact reason remains unknown like the mystery of evolution of mankind, there is no denying the fact that most countries` financial year differ from the calendar year.”
