He didn't take no mess. He wanted to be everybody's friend, but wouldn't tolerate bullshit. He was a man, the last gunslinger. He understood that if it foams at the mouth, you shoot it. I remember that fucked up day, 48 years ago today. Things got lots worse at breakneck speed after that day, and they continue to deteriorate. What a life, what a loss. We haven't seen the like of him since, and I fear we never will.
