Is there a collection of his "messages" anywhere online?

I honestly can't say that I would read them all the way through, but I'd feel better knowing they they're available for posterity.

Brain cancer? Maybe his diet wasn't so healthy after all.

@3 If the guy had died of heart disease maybe your comment would be warranted, but brain cancer? All kinds of people get brain cancer... it's no reason to accuse them of eating poorly. Jesus. It sounds like the guy did what he could, he lived how he could to keep the peace with himself. I give him props for trying.

I can't help but wonder if his brain tumor was the cause of all his nutty paranoid ramblings and his belief that he was "The Messenger."

I told you that organic food would give you cancer!

@4 There are links between nutrition and all sorts of ailments: heart disease, diabetes, degenerative disorders and, yes, cancer.

This is but one link to show that it's not a completely whack idea:

Maybe it was all the carbs that did him in.

Holy Shit! I used to work at a hotel downtown on Fourth, and in 2005 he checked in and stayed as a guest for nearly three months.

That guy was weird as hell. He used to sit in the lobby for 12 hours at a time, tripping balls on shrooms.

Good times, with that one. Unsettling to know he's gone.
