Fascinating article. One has to wonder if Joe didn't fight the cancer aggresively because, well, why should he? Did he think his life would have been worth living if he did survive it? I know that lung cancer is quite aggressive and can be very fatal. But the timing just seemed odd. I have to wonder if there just came a time where he said "It's over. There's no point in fighting it. My life's work is already over." He did go rather quickly from the time we heard about his diagnosis to the time of his death. And he did have access to the best health care money can buy. It's one of those things we'll never know. For all the good this man did, it's a shame he had to live his final moments knowing his life's work was taken from him without so much as a face to face meeting or warning, as well as being under constant onslought in the media.
