RIP - he was 96, and he served his country well and honorably. That's a lot more than most people can say.

Reagan appointed Koop because Koop was a hardcore christian - anti-gay, anti-abortion, anti-woman. But instead of being a rightwing tool, Koop instead chose to DO HIS JOB and act in the interests of public health, not the political interests of religious cults.

He opposed phony "studies" invented to end Roe v Wade. He spoke in favour of sex education, condoms and safe sex to curb the spread of AIDS, and promoted research into the disease. He increase the size and wording of anti-smoking warnings on the packages. And that's just a partial list.

And he never had brown fingers and teeth, never smelled like a skunk carcass and never had a hole in his throat.
