Just because I feel like it:
World's Oldest Man Dies

The world’s oldest man and World War I veteran, Henry Allingham of England, died on Saturday at the ripe old age of 113. He is the last to have seen the trench horrors of the Great War. Allingham had become the world’s oldest man on June 17th, according to Guinness Book of World Records, when the previous holder of that title, Tomoji Tanabe of Japan, died earlier this year.

The world’s oldest man is now David Broder, an American living in Virginia.
