Something of the John Clark of 10 seconds ago still exists right now;
Id like the same thing will be true 10 seconds from now. I feel no
obligation to explain why Id like this to happen, and in fact you may
feel differently and prefer oblivion. There is no disputing matters of
taste.

It was certainly the conventional viewpoint that Ronald Reagan died when
his heart stopped beating, but Ill let you in on a little secret, even
Fox news can be wrong. I think he died about 10 years before that.
