I'm sorry to see he's dead. I was hoping to talk to him. David Sabovich physically attacked me once. He was a bad, self centered, entitled ass hole of a person. I guess he got what he deserved - but only as long as he saw it coming and he experienced a lot of fear, horror, and pain. The worl is a better place.
