    16 word does not a report make. He would be insulted.

    RIP Andrew. Couldn't have disagreed with you more on policy, but it has no bearing on your ability to live a full, meaningful life.

    I never agreed with a word he either said or wrote but I am sorry to see him go and at such a young age. Who knows...as the years went by and he matured he may have eventually seen the light, followed the true path and become a liberal.
