HELMUT SCHMIDT DEAD AT 96 AND STILL SMOKING?
Icheoku says he lived a towering life better imagined by so many others as Chancellor of Germany from 1974 to 1982. Helmut Schmidt, the chain-smoking leader of Germany passed on at a very ripe old age of 96years as Icheoku wonders if he silenced all those who claim that smoking causes lung cancer and early death? Icheoku says if dying at nearly one hundred years old is early death, many in this world would similarly wish their departure. Then factor in his unashamed and unabashed smoking which is generally of public knowledge and you ask yourself where was his lung cancer; except that Dana Reeves died at 40years old of lung cancer and never once smoked in her very short life. Now go figure how factual are some of these scientific postulations. Icheoku no longer smokes but reserves judgment on all those still puffing the blue white smoke as doing anything that increases one's life's pleasure is nothing to be ashamed of. Moreso everyone is going to die someday of something, so if they said smoking is going to kill you young, then pray you die as young as Helmut Schmidt. Icheoku says adieu to a great German.
