<<All I can say is that you've mede it patently obvious that you have no clue who he was or what he was like.>>

I admit that I have limited information. Basically, only what he posted on TMF. I understand that he had some very admirable qualities. Most all do. It was obvious that he was fairly intelligent. He was not mean or discourteous. I am sure that he will be deeply missed by those that love him. If I had known him personally, he might even have been a friend.
Despite his many fine traits, his attitudes toward public policy were often misplaced,if not just plain wrong.
I offered that his solipcistic attitude may have in some fashion led to the event that killed him.
Is this wrong, or the truth?
