Hopefully my sadness is unjustified today. Hopefully Don Cornelius took his own life today out of a sense of satisfaction and completion of his life and a desire to spare himself and his loved ones the pain and suffering of declining health and old age. Hopefully there wasn’t some deep despair that eventually consumed this admirable man who accomplished so much in his full, long life. Whatever the case, I’m gonna be sad about it, and I’m gonna miss him. RIP Don.
