This is certainly sad, and I saw it last weekend but haven’t gotten around to posting it… Steve Gilliard of The News Blog died last week at the very young age of 42. During his illness I submitted a couple of things that were posted over there, but I fully expected him to return from whatever sickness he had and keep blogging. Unfortunately it didn’t happen, and isn’t it strange to kind of know people that you never met and then have them die? This is what the internet world has brought us. R.I.P., Steve. People of reason will miss you greatly.
