I felt kinda bad for him because on the news they showed him when he broke the news of his lung cancer (April), and he said how he smoked for many years back in the day, and how he broke down and smoked during the 9/11 attack. He was all choked up and shit.

Acid doesn't give you truths; it builds machines that push the envelope of perception. Whatever revelations came to me then have dissolved like skywriting. All I really know is that those few years saddled me with a faith in the redemptive potential of the imagination which, however flat, stale and unprofitable the world seems to me now, I cannot for the life of me shake.

Dude a man died today, and whether you liked what he stood for or not, at least show SOME respect or don't say anything.

Rest in peace, Mr. Jennings

If you've got all the answers, do something about it.

The only news person I have any smidgeon of respect for is John Stossel, and only because he did a peice on Americas "self-imposed victimhood syndrome".

But even he was full of his own shit...

This is my favorite retort in the whole fucking world.  :thumbup:

Let him speak his mind.

Men die every day. He's not protesting at his funeral like some nutty Christian zealot. He's sharing his opinion on an internet forum. PLEASE stop PRETENDING like it offends you so fucking much.

i'm not saying I'm glad he's dead or anything, I'm just saying that it's not like he was a fucking hero or anything. He was a media icon and not much else to me or most other people. TubOlucinogens is right, men die everyday, and this particular man was not so influential that he will be missed by anyone other than people who actually knew and cared about him.

Yeah, I'm not losing any sleep over it. I just know that many people on here have probably seen his face a few times in their lives, and I figured I'd make an announcement that he died.
