Right-winged Stress

Corwyn Zimbleman was an artist and designer who recently died at the age of 53. His obituary in the Arizona Daily Star is interesting. After describing his skills and accomplishments, it stated that he "never gained the recognition he deserved." The obituary continued:

As a child he was always bringing home reptiles. His friends nicknamed him "Snake." He even built a turtle pond in his backyard. An avid atheist, he studied the bible and religion with more fervor than most Christians. He had strong political opinions and followed Amy Goodman's radio broadcast "Democracy Now." Alas, the stolen election of 2000 and living with right-winged Americans finally brought him to his early demise. Stress from living in this unjust country brought about several heart attacks rendering him disabled.

Alas, indeed.

Wow. That obit's for real? How low will people stoop to get their agenda out there? Just makes me realize I should leave strict instructions for my obit lest someone use the opportunity to pontificate their opinions. Thanks! ;)

Poor guy. Now, if he had taken up blogging, he could have ranted, raved, made unfortunate remarks, and felt great!
