It's as if the Gods are sending some sort of message.<p>But what message? Was it really too much to ask that this man, who made mistakes in his life, but who knew what they were, who openly mourned the suffering of others, could end his life peacefully in his own bed?<p>Still, it's worth remembering just how that whole Greek tragedy got started.
