The only good news yesterday about the suicide of director Tony Scott was the report that he had inoperable brain cancer, so instead of withering away in agony, he at least went out on his own terms, and he could stick his arms out and pretend to be Superman for a few seconds because that would be fun.
Oh, but now the LA Times is here to say fuck you and your silver lining.
The Los Angeles County coroner’s office said it has not determined whether director Tony Scott had any health problems before he jumped off a San Pedro bridge Sunday and said family members have denied media reports that he was suffering from inoperable brain cancer.
As in many cases, the coroner said it would not have a final cause of death until toxicology and other tests are back in several weeks.
Yeah even if the doctor did tell me I had brain cancer, I don’t think I would have gone and jumped off a bridge. Mostly because I’m a huge pussy, but also just in case the doctor has another patient named Scott Tony who’s wondering why his headache won’t go away.
