Leonard Cohen, the Canadian poet and novelist who abandoned a promising literary career to become one of the foremost songwriters of the contemporary era, has died, according to an announcement Thursday night on his Facebook page. He was 82.
Mr. Cohen’s record label, Sony Music, confirmed the death. No details were available on the cause. Adam Cohen, his son and producer, said: “My father passed away peacefully at his home in Los Angeles with the knowledge that he had completed what he felt was one of his greatest records. He was writing up until his last moments with his unique brand of humor.”
All my heroes are dying 😞 “the master of erotic despair”

Wikileaks has a 10-year record of never releasing a single falsified document, and is not connected to Russia. Everything they released were the actual e-mails of Hillary Clinton and her campaign staff. You had the opportunity to look through a window into the Hillary Clinton campaign, but you didn’t.
By ignoring the leaks, you ignored reality.
By not listening to your fellow Americans, and accusing them of being “conspiracy theorists” and trusting the corporate media, you ignored reality. By only following other liberals on social media, and only reading liberal or corporate news, once again ignoring reality. When Hillary Clinton was caught rigging the primary against Bernie Sanders, and Democrats nominated her anyway they ignored reality.
A friend sent the above to me last night. Below is how I replied to her message.
That’s a good read. I was telling Maggie earlier that Hillary shouldn’t have even been the nominee.
Our country is so fucked up that often times it feels pointless. But I just try to be the best me I can for Maggie’s sake. Her generation will be so much better than ours.

Me: Maybe Trump will rise to the challenge of becoming president now that enough people believe in him. People can change for the better. I mean I haven’t stolen a wheelchair since I was 19.
Maggie: Wait, you were 19? Sometimes you think you know your parents.

I’m not a politician so I don’t play politics from the couch. We elect politicians so they can handle that stuff, just like judges or mayors, etc. I’m not a doctor so I don’t pretend to practice medicine kinda thing.
What I do know and make decisions on is who people are, what public image they present.
My point is… Politics aside, Trump is no one I could ever admire for simply being a good person. He’s a horrible person. He regularly says mean spirited things.
Those who voted for Trump should be ashamed of themselves. He publicly made fun of someone with disabilities — that’s not even a joke I would make in private and I make some pretty bad jokes.
And this Trump offense is one of literally hundreds. Regardless of where he stands on global warming or immigration, he lacks fundamental compassion.
Electing (let alone supporting) someone without basic human decency is pathetic. You’ve just said that who Trump is as a person is okay.
