i cant do english coursework knowing this

but thinking about it, he had acheived a lot with his lifetime, and the tragic circumstances of his death have only helped crystalise his memory.

R.I.P. Gov.
You wake up at Seatac, SFO, LAX. You wake up at O'Hare, Dallas-Fort Worth, BWI. Pacific, mountain, central. Lose an hour, gain an hour. This is your life, and it's ending one minute at a time. You wake up at Air Harbor International. If you wake up at a different time, in a different place, could you wake up as a different person?

when i go to bed i don't need to lock the door, my kids can play in the street safely and no one is gonna car jack me or rob me at gunpoint.

random explosions are a way of life here, but they are also becoming a way of life for you guys as well.
Not the place for this.

RIP man...this is definitely a sad, sad loss to everyone who knew about you.

Man I just read it on the news and had to come here to confirm.. This for real sucks, that is horrible..

RIP Ken.. You have always been, and always will be one of the best yahooka has ever known.

And Shepherds we shall be

For thee, my Lord, for thee.

Power hath descended forth from Thy hand

Our feet may swiftly carry out Thy commands.

So we shall flow a river forth to Thee

And teeming with souls shall it ever be.

In Nomeni Patri Et Fili Spiritus Sancti.
RIP to our friend and highly respected peer Ken Gorman

This is both tragic and senseless, and Gorman died a hero

Well, I'm one of the YaHookans who had the priveledge of meeting the Gov in person, in 2003 when I was in CO the whole summer. For a couple nights I stayed on his couch. We got all toked up and went to the annual Taste of Denver. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. I was so looking forward to seeing him again someday. I kept meaning to give him another call just to say hi. Now that it won't ever happen again, I'm so angry at myself for procrastinating.

The poster who said that this death crystalizes his memory is dead on target. This is definitely re-firing me up for the legalization cause.

Also, we must remember that Gorman died a hero. Every hour of his life, he was devoted to freedom. He knew he was risking his safety by openly telling the world that he grew cannabis in his home, because it made him subject to police raids and criminal break-ins alike. Like many truly dedicated activists, he didn't care about such dangers. Indeed, he probably realized that if he were to die this way, it would simply make a martyr out of him.

Gorman didn't care about being covert, or subtle, or under-the-curtain. As he said on a round-table debate show once, to a DEA officer: I advertised in the paper that I was selling marijuana. It took 'em THREE YEARS to catch me!!

RIP Ken. You will be sorely missed.

Thats weird, I think the secret service or something killed him. Or maybe one pissed off customer but, whoever did it should be punished severely.

Post Ken Gorman was a true friend to mankind.....

He would do anything to help his fellow man. I knew him for the past 15 years and stood with him at rallies. I am honored to have been personally associated with such a great man. He died fighting for what is right. He made many advances in the fight so his death was not in vain.

He was a true soldier. He fought the same two entities that stand the most to lose if prohibition goes away-police and gangs. They truly are on the same side when it comes to prohibition. Anyone, including agencies supported by tax dollars, that supports prohibition supports crime and drug dealers and wants to keep them in place.

It is a shame when a person is persecuted because of a plant that comes from the Lord that we could be using in so many beneficial ways if it wasn't for the greed of Korporate Amerikka.

I do not believe they will catch the perpetrator because they really don't have any desire to. It may have been a police officer or other government agent that did this. Conform or die.

Thank you Ken Gorman for all you have done for all of us.
A true patriot is always ready to stand up against his own government.

We can't be using plants that come from the Lord for beneficial purposes. Now hurry up, or we'll be late for church.

^ Thanks for posting that article, I was sorely depressed thinking that questions like the ones presented therein would not get any press.

I didn't know you Gov but your death is a shame in this corrupt world so filled with greed and malice. Enjoy your repose.

I found this guy awesome simply from yahooka. I didn't even know he was such an advocate in real life as well.

I'm sure he's smoking a big one right now...and no one is trying to stop him.
