What an incredible man. I wish I could be half the man he was, and do a fourth of the things he did.

Heck - a tenth of what he did - and no fame at all - I'd still take it! :D

RIP Stan. You will be missed. He was smarter in 1968 than republicans are today. He’s the real MVP; or should I say, the real superhero?

Isn't lumping and judging all Republicans as one catagory a perfect example of the bigotry Mr. Lee was speaking out aganst?
