I didn’t agree with his politics and I supported his opponent in the last election (although I couldn’t vote in that election as I live in Illinois) but that doesn’t make his death a sad event. My condolences go out to his family and friends and my prayers for him and his family as well.

He shared my birthday, June 17th, along with Barry Manilow, Joe Piscopo, Newt Gingrich, MC Escher, former IAEA Director General Mohamed El Baradei, former Mayor of London, Ken Livingstone, and others.

He died of complications from gall bladder surgery.
