Gah...did he ever get to see that Recobbled Cut of The Thief and the Cobbler?

And on that note, is there any way to see it officially? I feel like that needs attention now more than ever...sad

EDIT: Never mind, I don't think he ever saw that Recobbled Cut. This is a dark day for animation...sadsad

David Koch just died. He was an American right-wing political activist and donor along with his surviving brother, Charles.

Probably should be working.

[up] As much as I might agree, this is the "rest in peace" thread, we should try to keep that rhetoric limited to a minimum.

Life is unfair...

Some people do not deserve to rest in peace. That's all I'm going to say on the matter.

When we are crushing the black hearts of our oppressors, we will find our hands blackened.

We should respect people who deserve respect, living or dead. He did not, and does not, deserve respect.

Who are the ones that we kept in charge? Killers, thieves, and lawyers. God's away, god's away, god's away on business... business.

Rules are not to celebrate anyone's death no matter how heinous. Nobody said we had to praise them though.

Usually gravedancing warnings aren't so close to literal...

Please don't use the RIP thread for non-restful/non-peaceful sentiments. If you feel a person deserves neither, this is not the venue for that.

Strangely Koch hasn't been listed on the Wikipedia front page, but has been in the recent deaths page.

I think itís worth this thread not being used to post about controversial deaths, I donít believe Epsteinís death was posted here and I think thatís a good precedent to follow.

I didnít think Koch was that controversial a death tbh. Just a famous one. Epsteinís is on another level to Koch imo

The Koch brothers are amongst the biggest individual blockers of action against climate change on the planet, considering the expected increased death toll and generational harm due to delayed action on climate change this entirely possible that the Koch brothers have caused more harm and suffering to children then Epstein could have ever hoped to.

They may well be up there with Columbus for how they will be regarded by historians looking at mass human suffering.

Honestly anyone who is credited as being on a particular political side probably shouldnít be posted here.

Koch is at a minimum up there with John Mc Cain and Fidel Castro when it comes to controversial deaths, Iím not sure such deaths belong here.

Ideally, we should simply post such deaths and adhere to the rule of "if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all."
