That is a young age to just drop dead.

American-Irish eyes: That is a young age to just drop dead.


I'm sure his diet of cocaine, young hookers and the finest steaks and butter helped him along.

Hello, I am a lawyer representing the estate of OPEC Secretary General Mohammad Barkindo and need your help moving $20MM in US dollars out of Nigeria to his family overseas. For your assistance you will be compensated a 10% fee ($2MM) - I just need to cover the $5,000 bank transfer fees if you could please wire me the funds via Western Union I'll get started on the paperwork immediately

OPEC should be disbanded.

Sad tag?

I'm sure his family thinks so, but how is this sad?  It's "Meh" at best.  Elderly (yes, "elderly" - he was past middle-aged), extremely-rich guy dies.  Happens every day.  Unless he was a driving force behind global humanitarian works, he's just some worthless schmuck who greedily leeched off the average person to line his own pockets.

Save the Sad tag for people who actually did good in the world.

It hope the next one has a great name but this time he makes sure that Farkers know that name.  Barkindo.  What a loss.  On Woofday Wetnose Wednesday , too.

Well, if it were entirely within US or EU jurisdiction, it might be. Maybe if someone other than Merrick Garland were AG here, for example. Not a certainty, of course, the airlines engage in behavior that looks suspiciously like a cartel, but cartels and price fixing are supposedly illegal. But none of that's the case, so OPEC will be a fact of life for the foreseeable future.

A pallet of cash must have fallen on him or drowned in his money bath.

I'm pretty sure he enriched his people as well. The GDP per capita of Nigeria has more than tripled in the last 25 years. Compare that with some of their neighbors.

Maybe he accidentally a bone saw.

You think the US could disband OPEC.

You're dumb.

People in glass houses... You apparently can't read. At least I've mastered that. Did you see the "if"? The "none of that's the case"?
