My answer: yes. Why not?

Re: Tributes

Tribute whomever you like I would say, except living politicians and entertainers who are ever at risk of doing something beyond the pale.

I can't tell you how many streets, bridges, and buildings have been named...only to have to be named later.

We always seem to miss the people who should be given the most kudos: The woman who played the organ in church for 60 years without missing a service, the little old lady in my town who can barely walk and is hunched over, but makes it a mission to walk the streets and alleys to take care of and identify strays or animals that are being neglected or mistreated, the man in my mom's neighborhood has made it his mission to be an unpaid handyman for widows or people who can't afford to pay....

Perhaps it's the people who act from their hearts rather than as a result of their pay that we should be singling out the most.

Re: Tributes

Last word. A tribute paid to anybody or anything by anybody else is totally fine with me. Because it sure beats a bomb, a bullet or a mouth full of abuse. More tributes, less hate.

Re: Tributes

On that reckoning, you could be tributing, a person who has the capacity to authorise the dropping of a bomb, regardless of their previous public appearances.
