C. Everett Koop Dies Of Lung Cancer

C. Everett Koop, one of the most famous of America's surgeon generals has died aged 96. He carried out a crusade to end smoking in the United States and once said that cigarettes were as addictive as heroin and cocaine.

His battle with heroin and cocaine was legendary, he went on week long binges with Kurt Cobain and Frank Sinatra.
A devout Presbyterian he opposed homosexuality and believed sex should be saved for marriage .... unless it was between men and young boys as then that was cool according to God. 

When AIDS came out he shocked the other Bible bashers by urging the use of condoms and safe sex education in schools. He created a pair of hand puppets as a teaching aide called Mr Pumpy and Ms Slutty.
He died in his New Hampshire home the way he lived, a needle in his arm, clamps on his nipples and ball sack and a hooker on his face.
The cause of his death was not disclosed though the tree that fell through his roof might be a leading factor.  

It was not Lupus.
