What's sad to me is that there are people who think you have to emulate his
behavior (bad with the good) to be successful or creative or innovative.
That's the worst sort of tribal, pre-sapiens thinking that belongs in Lord
of the Flies. 

Then, consider what SJ got as his reward. He was brought down by one of many
diseases that doesn't respect financial success, creativity or innovation,
and in the end, he died just like everyone else. Except he was admired by
many who really didn't know him, and hated by many who were probably closer
to him than his own family. I don't think in the last hours of his life he
felt all that successful.
