Lefty Hero worship

This story has everything the left worships: Artist, A.D.D., mental illness, "emotional state" because of a broken relationship, person haunted by all the preceeding, the fight against "oppression of working people", bomb threats, jail time and an unexpected early death.

UPDATE: Well, there are some interesting details in this article that were left out of the one above.
Raised a Christian, he was born again in Mississippi, said his mother, Lorraine Sprinkle.

When he returned to Seattle, his art friends couldn't handle the Christianity, said Donnelly. "His Christianity was one of the big reasons he wasn't accepted back into the art community," said Donnelly. "It isn't hip to be Christian."

It certainly puts quite a bit of perspective on the story.
