If you don't know who Robert Anton Wilson is, you are really missing out. He's probably the smartest guy I've ever heard speak about anything. You can read up on him here.




Yesterday Ken showed me an article on boingboing, explaining that Robert is dying. For years he's dealt with the painful reality of Post Polio Syndrome. Robert is in the uncomfortable situation of dying broke. Full time care is extremely expensive, for this reason his friends and fans have asked for some help:



"Robert is dying at his home from post polio syndrome. He has enough money for next months rent and after that will be unable to pay. He cannot walk, has a hard time talking and swallowing, is extremely frail and needs full time care that is being provided by several friends-fans-volunteers and family. We appeal to you to help financially for the next few months to let him die at his home in peace."



Immediately Ken and I decided we would do what we can to help. What we can do is make shirts, so we did just that:

Immediately Ken and I decided we would do what we can to help. What we can do is make shirts, so we did just that:<br>
<br>
<A HREF="http://giantrobotprinting.com/store/shirts/raw/pope"><IMG SRC="http://giantrobotprinting.com/store/images/shirts/pope/pope.jpg"</A><br>
<br>
We are selling the shirts for $15, $10 of each shirt will be sent directly to RAW. I know it can be hard to spare $50 or $100 to a charity. So this gives people the chance to send an amount most can afford. Hopefully this shirt will get linked around and we can actually send a significant amount of money to one of my heroes. (Click on the shirt to go to the Giantrobotprinting.com store.)<br>

<br>
Each shirt comes with appointment as a full fledged Pope of <A HREF="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Discordian">Discordianism.</A><br>
<br>
If you don't really want another shirt, or Papacy, but still want to help an amazing person in his final days Please send whatever help you can directly to him:<br>
<br>
RAW c/o Futique Trust, P.O. Box 3561, Santa Cruz, Ca 95063 or via Paypal at olgaceline@gmail.com.<br>
<br>
Please pass this along to whoever you can.<br>
<br>
Thanks,<br>
