This man took pride in being American and took Freedom seriously.
Sure he did. That's why he was lucky he got his ass kicked out of the Air Force before his enlistment was up and given an honorable discharge as an undeserved kindness.
He was a gifted writer, but he pretty much f'ed up everything he ever did before he blew his brains out. At least he had the decency to not miss and leave himself a vegetable on the public dole.
I love it when people like him drape themselves with the flag...
