Now, they're saying that at age 79, he had a myriad of health problems. Oh really? Well, he was well enough to be vacationing at a lavish ranch in West Texas. He didn't live there. And, he was well enough to keep working as a Supreme Court Justice. There was no talk of him retiring, was there?
Look: if he was ambulatory and stable- stable enough to be working and stable enough to travel for leisure- and he died suddenly at the age of 79, and it was natural, then something catastrophic must have happened inside his body. Either he had a heart attack, a stroke, a pulmonary embolism, a ruptured aneurysm, or something- and I mean something that would have been detected on autopsy. So, why didn't they do one? How could they not want to know? How could his family not want to know? And whose decision was it? They said that some judge decided, but why wasn't it up to his family? He's got as many kids as there are justices on the Supreme Court.
