from Gatway Pundit
If I had to guess, I’d say that the more lucrative panhandling and easier procuring of drugs due to his many new fans and hangers-on probably killed the guy. Where-as before, his poverty kept his drug addiction down to a manageable and non-lethal level, the notoriety he gained by being a very vocal and extroverted crazy in a sea of crazy gained him just enough money or free drugs for him to kill himself. Notwithstanding the scold above who berates us to have compassion for this guy, what we see here is Darwinism in action. The world is better off if this guy’s genes are not propagated. The world doesn’t really need “Son of Street-Poet” crazy, we’re all stocked up here.
