Obit: Albert Hofmann, 102; Chemist Discovered LSD…posted by Bill Arnett @ 1:42 PM Permalink …from the washingtonpost.com:
Albert Hofmann, 102, a Swiss chemist and accidental father of LSD who came to view the much-vilified and abused hallucinogen he discovered in 1938 as his "problem child," died April 29 at his home in Burg, a village near Basel, Switzerland, after a heart attack.Mike McConnel and the senior staff at the CIA mourns the loss of this pioneer in the use of psycho-tropic drugs to torture unsuspecting prisoners, people selected off the street at random, and staff alike.
Mr. Hofman's death has been confirmed, but it will not be until he comes down from his last high and returns to his corporeal self that he can actually be buried.
Jerry Garcia has promised to return from the dead to sing a special eulogy.
Note: Despite the joking I extend the condolences of me and my family to Mr. Hofman's family. R.I.P.
