God bless his memory and his work. Rest in the Lord, Sir.

His beard, however, remains on life support.

(Scrutinize our government and secure the Blessing of Freedom and Justice)
Koop announced that cigarette packs had to carry a warning statement (1964). I was still a kid but I recognized the intrusion of government into my life. I started smoking that very day as my own act of defiance.

(Part of the 51% who pay Federal taxes)
Curiously, the article doesn’t mention how he died. Of course, in the end it’s all the same: Killed by death.

I'm sure he'll be missed by his family and friends, but it's really pathetic when you come across an obituary like this for someone who is only known in public because he once held one of the most pointless Federal positions ever created (and that's saying a lot).
Personally, I would have launched a campaign to remove my name from the history books once that dingbat Jocelyn Elders later filled the same role.
