Oh my wows! I remember reading this part of the quote in several places....

"When I die there will be a final waltz playing in my head, that only I can hear."

Story here


I remember too, thinking how deeply beautiful that was. Well hoax it might be, but Shane did a really nice job coming up with that.

That says something that really makes me sad.
Journalisim is no longer what it once was.Before the days of Rupert Murdock there were real journalists.Of course most newspapers barely have a staff now so no real investigative journalisim can be done anymore.
It's tragic in a way that research now involves Wikipedia.
I like Wikipedia,but they aren't the most reliable source since anyone can edit it.

I think it's hysterical! I'm not surprised, though. I have to admit, Wikipedia has gotten me out of a lot of binds when I wrote papers in grad school. grin
