OCTOBER 6, 2011 | ISSUE 47â€¢40
CUPERTINO, CAâ€”Steve Jobs, the visionary co-founder of Apple Computers and the only American in the country who had any clue what the ƒück he was doing, died Wednesday at the age of 56. "We haven't just lost a great innovator, leader, and businessman, we've literally lost the only person in this country who actually had his shït together and knew what the hell was going on," a statement from President Barack Obama read in part, adding that Jobs will be remembered both for the life-changing products he created and for the fact that he was able to sit down, think clearly, and execute his ideasâ€”attributes he shared with no other U.S. citizen. "This is a dark time for our country, because the reality is none of the 300 million or so Americans who remain can actually get anything done or make things happen. Those days are over." Obama added that if anyone could fill the void left by Jobs it would probably be himself, but said that at this point he honestly doesnâ€™t have the slightest notion what heâ€™s doing anymore.
