Ray Manzarek, the keyboardist from The Doors and coolest cat in the universe, died today of bile duct cancer. He was seventy-four.
Are you fucking kidding me man?
I’m sick of this already. Cancer is getting to be like the goddamn common cold.
But you know we can beat it, right?
If this great country of ours, with all of its wealth and ingenuity, decided to eradicate cancer, we would. It’s that simple.
In 1903, we were the first to fly. And just sixty-six years later, we landed on the moon.
How? We promised ourselves as a nation we would.
We are the lizard kings and if we want, we can do anything.
We just have to want it bad enough. We have to turn all attention to it. Even if it isn’t entirely profitable. But obviously, as of now, it isn’t a priority.
Hopefully our priorities will change soon.
Change before it’s too late.
