Like many other deaths, I'll see this one with a simple "noted without regret." I'm not one to wish a painful death on people, and the news reports I've seen so far indicate that his passing was quick. In the meantime, he lived a long, prosperous, influential life and I don't think anyone close to him needs to feel cheated. Those of us who disagreed with his views, on the other hand, can keep up the work of opposing his views more civilly and with less rancor than he did.
