is pretty rare:
It is with heavy heart tonight that I post the sad passing of one of our fellow conservative bloggers, the infamous Snaggletoothie.
I received an email from Chris’s father this evening telling me of his son’s death. Chris suffered a seizure Monday, fell and hit his head, and by the end of the week he was in a coma. He died Friday afternoon.
I’m old enough to note the oddity of mourning people you’ve never actually met, but as the decades progress this will become more and more the norm and we will be reading regular blogger obits as one does in any community.
It’s not a pleasant thought but perhaps It is time to say this aloud now while I am able.
All of you out there, from Adrienne’s Corner, to Robert Stacy McCain, from Haemet to Hotair, from Glenn Reynolds to Val Prieto, Barbara Espinosa, Aliester, Bill Jacobson, The Lonely Conservative, Sissy Willis and the Anchoress, and No one of any import Smitty, Peg and everyone else I’ve left out (and I’ve left out many). My fellow bloggers, those I have met and those I have not. You have all made my life richer and happier and I thank each and every one of you for it.
