I Have To Pay My Last Respects…

…to a man I admire very much. We lost a great advocate, crusader, defender, and smut peddler yesterday – Larry Flint.

“Anybody can be a playboy, but it takes a man to be a hustler.”

I had a post full of innuendo and light humor planned, thinking that he would have appreciated it, but that just doesn’t feel right.

I did not personally know the man, I’m not trying to act like I know much behind the headlines, and I’m not here to educate you on who he was, or the things he’s accomplished. I’m here because I just wanted to say… Damn. This really sucks.

I love how he was still fighting for everything he believed worth fighting for.

I appreciate that in some small way he’s one of the reasons I can have a blog like this today.

His [still trendsetting] magazine is pretty awesome, too.
