    Hugh Heffner dies at 91

    He sure lived it up when he was alive.
    XVI.8: Confucius said, "There are three things of which the superior man stand in awe. He stands in awe of the ordinances of Heaven. He stands in awe of great men. He stands in awe of the words of the sages. The mean man does not know the ordinances of Heaven, and consequently does not stand in awe of them. He is disrespectful to great men. He makes sport of the words of the sages."

    Did he ever! And it worked for him - 91 is pretty good. I didn't realize Mr. Hefner was such a philanthropist, until now. Any man is OK in my book, who:

    (a) supported an endangered species of marsh rabbit. It is now named after him - sylvilagus palustris hefneri.
    (b) saved the Hollywood sign

    You can see a bit about Mr. Hefner's life and his philanthropy here. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hugh_Hefner
    I note Mr. Hefner also actively supported the cause of gay marriage. Good for him. I hope he finds his afterlife as full and satisfying as his temporal life. He deserves no less.

    Cute bunny. Then again, Hugh Hefner and bunnies have a long history together...

    I'm not one to speak flatteringly of the dead when it is undeserved. He was not a hero.

    He did a lot more harm than good in his life.

    "Unless you think that your purpose on this earth is to masturbate as much as humanly possible, Hugh Heffner was not a man driving you towards virtue." - Ben Shapiro

    On the otherhand-

    "I have the same hope in God as these men themselves have, that there will be a resurrection of both the righteous and the wicked" - Acts 24:15

    I'd like to meet this guy some day. There may be a lot we can learn from one another. May he rest in peace.
