Best not to put people on pedestals or otherwise idolise them, because people always disappoint and it's worse if you held them in very high regard.
Best to see people as they are, celebrate the good they do, and lament or criticise the bad.
@liw You've probably seen this already but:
“Life is not a ledger. Your sins can't be paid off through good deeds. Your good deeds are not cancelled by your sins.”
@ersatzmaus Actually, my toot was inspired by The Guardian's column about that very speech, plus another article there about how John Cleese is pro-Brexit while another Monty Python member isn't and disagrees strongly.
