I don't judge that. I don't judge you for judging it though. It just means it hasn't happened to you.


Yet.

Perhaps. One the other hand, if I ever have the kind of chronic pain requiring that shit, I'll off myself.

The way oxycodone was promoted, pushed, marketed is a real crime.

I do not share the glee over his death, but I did not agree with much of anything he said. I think I, at most, listened to a total of an hour of him in all of his years. In a way, I found his addiction deliciously ironic, simply because it could, literally, even with "scare quotes," in the rain, happen to everyone.

Funnily enough, the one thing I remember him saying occurred during a long drive where the alternatives were "JESUS" and Wings music. Someone out of central casting for toothless sister-raper – not . . . that there is anything . . . no . . . wait! – called to ask him about various conspiracies. These include such now laughably silly as highway signs having secret codes to direct the UN tanks when they take over!

He admitted to the caller that his father had believed such, but he never could since he had to always wonder why "they" never actually took over. After decades of conspiracy theory – such as taking the time to mark highway signs! – "they" still could not take over.

The caller protested the usual "IS GOiNT GTO HAPPENS ANY MINUTES" and Rush moved on.

A surprising moment of critical thinking.

Shame that he did not apply it to other areas.

Nor did nor do his critics.

In the rain.

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

Too bad. He was friends with Ed Ney Chairman of Y&R back in the day. Ed contributed to his efforts. Met him once, nice guy.

Most folks have no idea who Vernon is/was. I feel honored to have shaken the hand of that big 'ole feller.
