Make that Double Damn.

Apart from liking Comfort's prolongevist views and anti-statism, I learned
a lot from his classic "The Joy of Sex" in my teens. Another incredible
repository of wisdom gone forever. Every time I hear of another
intellectual influence dying, I get yet more frustrated with our culture's
failure to make ending aging the top priority.
