Yes he was a "visionary", yes he was a revolutionary... and he was also a bad human. Let's not forget that part too.

Just keeping it all in perspective.
Who is saying he was a saint? I worked with him alot and he wasn't perfect, no one said he was, he was a flawed human like all of us. If they wrote a 300 page expose on any of our lives there shit in there that would look bad period end of story. Maybe not MTG bad but bad none the less.
