Quotes of the Morning: RIP RAW

“One of my favorite authors died last week. Robert Anton Wilson, author of Illuminatus! And dozens of other wonderful books, kicked the bucket January 11th.

'E's kicked the bucket, 'e's shuffled off 'is mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin' choir invisible!! THIS IS AN EX-PARROT!!”

Please pardon my levity, I don't see how to take death seriously. It seems absurd.”
-Robert Anton Wilson, January 6, 2007
