He was only 93... why do the good always die so young?

13. i'm having a blast
beautiful sunny day, the little birdies are singing, new buds (perhaps thanks to global warming) on the old fig tree

they did used to say that one of the great pleasures of heaven was looking down at the writhing sinners in hell, so here's a shout-out to jerry, nixon, and the whole gang!
