Live fast, die young

I don't get to watch a great deal of television.  But one of my guilty pleasures over the last five years or so has been stealing an hour a week to live vicariously through others while watching the Deadliest Catch.  Sadly Captain Phil Harris of the Cornelia Marie died of what was reported to be a massive stroke, he was only 53.  Not surprising.  Last season he was almost taken out by a massive pulmonary embolism and did little or nothing to alter the bad habits that brought him to an early end.  Captain Phil was unique and alas one of a dying breed.  The last of the true American adventurers. May he rest in peace.
