There are no more great men being made and now there is one less in this world

Does it mean that because he was 89 years of age it was not cost effective to keep him alive or rather that it is against New World Order policy to spend money on old folks or does it mean that there was in fact nothing that could be done that would not involve him being kept as a vegetable on life support until his organs all failed.
Who do you trust?

Unlike myself, he could in fact make decisions...
