The Death of the Greatest American Con-Guru

Adi Da (one of the most extreme of the 20th century God-men) died on Thanksgiving. This may be a little late, and of little interest to most of you. (He had many names: Da Free John is probably the most recognizable to many of us.) He lived in luxury in Fiji, with many beautiful "consorts."

Once you've found that special someone, compare his rating with Gurus and Masters throughout history. I'm a bit disapointed that Confucius is only a Two Star guru, while William Shakespeare comes in at Three Stars, just like Jesus.
