Famous Last Words

Steven Wells: (10 May 1960 – 24 June 2009)

Further to my previous posting on the woeful US Healthcare system, belated condolences on the demise of StVeN wElLS.

The Lymphatic Cancer that the US Healthcare system punished him for having the temerity to contract (how come a nation that prides itself on its Christian values can punish the sick?) returned last year and done did for him.

This, then, from his last column, published posthumously:

And of course all this bollocks is written by an idiot who has polished his image as an existentialist, atheist hard-man and anti-mope, forever sneering at the tribes who wallow in self-pity -- the gothers, the emo kids, the Smiths fans -- the whole 900-block-wide marching band composed entirely of the white male urban middle classes who are convinced that (as the most affluent and pampered human beings who have ever walked the planet) theirs is a story worth hearing. Blissfully unaware that they are but a few generations away from regular visits to the doctor who would wind parasitic worms from their beer bloated assholes using sticks. (Check out the AMA logos, those smiling beasts are not snakes.)

You could blame this fallacy on poor education, cultural deterioration, or simple moral decline.

Me? I blame it on sunshine. I blame it on the moonlight. I blame it on the boogie.

Blame it on the Boogie. Published mere hours before That Other Death.


PS: Friend went to Hong Kong and was taken violently ill. Before he would even be seen in the Emergency Room, he had to hand over an advanced payment in 1 lump sum. $HK 40,000. Cash.
