how else could he have gone? Seems perfectly fitting to me that he went on his own terms, on his own time, instead of waiting for his body to rot out from under him.

well, he threatened to do it so many times under a chemically enhanced stupor it should really be no surprise. the evils of this world are enough to bring down the greatest.

yes, i'm sure you saw it coming. if only he could have had your perspective on the evils that be - he might still be alive. what truth you speak. what absolute compassion (minus the evil stuff that you don't agree with).

hail mary!

I'm wondering if the findings of his autopsy will be reported anywhere...My friends and I are pretty much agreed on the idea that he probably discovered he had some degenerative or terminal condition and decided, like Swampdog said, to go on his own terms.
Thanks to Addis, I had more free time.

I a writing this not to belittle the man but when I found out he shot him self I was a little disapointed. I would have thought he could have thought of something more out of the ordinary, although he did love guns so I have mixed feelings on the whole subject.

He admired Heminways suicide. Shotgun also. His cremated remains will be shot out of a cannon.
