Joe Michael Sasanuma, who earlier today died at the eternal age of 18, never had a moment in which he didn’t enjoy life.
He lived by the words “What’s the point of living if you can’t feel alive?”, a line fittingly taken from the James Bond movie “The World is Not Enough”. Of the many things Joe loved about life, watching and critiquing movies, with the James Bond series closest to his heart, was on his list of top ten.
Joe’s unique talent was having opinions and verbally expressing them, often with very little thought. One-liner insults were his specialty. Joe referred to actress Denise Richards, who co-starred in the aforementioned James Bond film, as “The bitch who ruined a perfectly fine James Bond film.” Of Picasso, he said “I know shit when I see one.” But Joe always kept the best lines for liberals, about whom he memorably declared “Everyone has the right to be wrong.”
