Well, people do die every day. Let's scratch another name off the 'people I hope to exchange a sentence or two with, at some point' list.
  • he bought my boss a drink. It's one of the coolest stories I've heard.
  • ... but one of those spots on the "dead people you'd like to have for dinner" is now taken....
  • I honestly had no idea that he was that depressed(ever depressed, but not 'off yourself' depressed)...Not that you know these things, necessarily, but his recent columns have, if anything, been more spritely and whimsical than ones from just a few years ago. A reaction against some grating depression, maybe?

    Poor Anita.
    • There's a theory that he may have had some fatal illness and just didn't want to deteriorate before he died. Merely speculation I believe, but mentioning it because suicide doesn't always mean depression.
    • Well, he did have a hip replacement that was recovering poorly- and had recently broken a leg, in addition. I can certainly see looking at this and going '...it's all downhill from here, isn't it'.
    • It definitely seems like a possibility to me as well. The reason I focused on depression, though, is that he's always seemed depressive. It would not surprise me if he was terminally ill, but I'm also not sure that that's the case or that the response was reasonable to his circumstance.
  • Sorry

    You were the first one I thought of when I heard. Well, you'll get to have nice long chats on the other side that will be very enlightened. At least that's what I like to think about the after life.
  • I can't imagine him going any other way. It was very much in tune with his life.
