Lords of the Revolution: Timothy Leary and the CIA
W.H. Bowart - July 11, 2009
The Associated Press reported that ’60’s LSD proselyte, Timothy Leary died in his sleep, May 31, 1996. It reported that Carol Rosin, his friend for 25 years was by his side along with family and friends.
Rosin told the AP: “He had been alert for the last few days — he’d been traveling with one foot in this world and one foot in the other world. Until yesterday, he was moving around in an electric wheelchair, but he was getting weaker.
After his passing, Leary’s homepage on the World Wide Web said simply: “Timothy has passed.” It also said his last words were three “why not’s” and one “yeah.” Leary himself, had reported that he was taking morphine to ease the pain for months. It is well know that Leary had always been into drugs — any drugs, all drugs, both prescription and recreational.
