On this day in 1945, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt
died while sitting for a portrait (above) in Warm Springs, GA.
His last words were "I have a terrific headache."

(or something along those lines) And that makes me wonder how much chemical enhancement Mr Jobs had. It's well known that in his youth he used many drugs. And frankly, if I know I'm going to die soon (as in "within days") I suspect I would be absolutely willing to try many combinations of drugs, because, frankly, what have I got to lose?
The only down side to taking an entire blotter sheet of LSD a few hours before I snuff it is the possibility that I have a really bad trip and then die in the middle of it. That would suck. There are so many drugs whose only immediate effect is euphoria though. I can completely imagine saying "give me the happy drip until I think I'm God." That seems much more preferable to "I have a terrific headache."
Weren't Jim Henson's last words said to be Hi-ho, Kermit the Frog here!
