something i’ll never forget

20Jul04

george eastman, founder of eastman kodak was obviously a rich, smart, powerful dude. he invented consumer photography, he built an empire, he saw the world, he hunted big game. he had tons of friends, he had everything, but he never had a mate. at the age of 78, eastman committed suicide. if i remember correctly, it was with a shotgun, but i might be wrong about that. he left a note. all it said was “to my friends: My work is done. Why wait?”
