Kandor Korner

Today we bring you a bittersweet "Kandor Korner" from K. Hume O'Henderbaum. Hume passed away peacefully of natural kauses last night at 11:24 PM, three days shy of his 95th birthday. Longtime friend Peter Doe was with him at the end and transcribed his more-or-less final words:

"As the lights grow dim, I take solace and comfort in biology, in the knowledge that I am a limited entity. Try as I may to the contrary, I can never be all things to all people. I will always disappoint at least somebody and ultimately never transcend above my biological constraints. As I look back on my long life, I can say that the only thing I’ve come to know for certain is that I don’t know shit about shit. Perhaps this is a copout to get me off the hook for all the insensitive and cruel things I’ve done and said, but it’s the best I can do at this point. After all, I’m a flawed, limited biological being. A limited being who is not long for this world." 

In loving memory of K. Hume O’Henderbaum, 1919 - 2014
"We can only learn if we check our ideologies and preconceptions at the door of fate."
