Not Suicide for Van Gogh

Alas with my aging brain I can’t remember where I first heard that it was not suicide for my hero Vincent.  I do believe that it was on some PBS station on the radio while driving that I heard the news that some 8 year old shot my hero, and that it was not until his – the shooter’s deathbed, at age age 88 that he confessed to taking out one of my all time favorite artist.  And all of this is written up in some newly released book for all to read.  But can I find this book, or even the newscast that I heard? Not a chance, google has failed me….. maybe you will have better luck than I.

But I am am happy, sleeping better each night knowing/thinking that it was not suicide.

Ha, the secrets we keep………  let me state now that I have not shot anyone at anytime, the only secret that I will publicly release is the theft of a neighbor’s very cute small hairbrush from their screened porch when I was about 7 year’s old.  I am sorry.  And I am also not on my deathbed (to the best of my knowledge).
