I See Dead People Seeing Things

I was just going from the fridge to the patio-cum-office (if you're going to spend the weekend working, you may as well throw some sunshine and Margaritas into the mix), and as I passed the TV, I caught a snippet of newscast. Something about a fundraising bike ride up a North Shore mountainside, called The Cyprus Challenge. The ride is in honor of Jack Poole, who, according to the perky newscaster,
"...was integral in bringing the Olympics to Vancouver. Poole died in 2009, just months before he saw his dream become a reality."
I don't mean to be a Debbie Downer, but as I understand it, one's powers of observation are among the first things to go after one dies.
