I think the website got shut down but I read it this morning and I have to say it was damn interesting, he has everything down as far as researching what gun to use what ways were quick, slow and somewhat unreliable.

He did his research and it looks like he knew what he wanted to do and when no questions, if anything you have to appreciate how organized he was in planning his death.

I read it, odd fellow. Maybe boredom with life?

Seems like it, also seems like he did everything he wanted to as far as accomplishments and just living his life.

not agreeing with the fact he thought life is over at the age of 60 and 90% of his creativity etc is over. Talked with enough people of that age saying they enjoy life way more than when they were young(er).

Re: Retired Sportswriter Commits Suicide and Leave Website to Explain

He said it himself on one of the many pages - Self serving. Ones legacy is maintained through those that loved the person in question. Those who remember with fondness the good times and the bad. That's how memories live on, not through some piece of work, be it written, spoken, painted or otherwise, seen and remembered by a bunch of strangers.
All of that is irrelevant to the people you leave behind, your loved ones. All they will remember of you is that fact you left them when they needed you most, and in the most selfish way possible.
But, in time they will forgive and remember you for the person you really were.
