David Foster Wallace is gone. If you knew who he was, you know why this is important and a terrible loss.
If you don't know why, read The Broom of the System, Brief Interviews with Hideous Men, and above all, Infinite Jest. Woodrow, that book is in that box I manage to keep never sending you. Maybe now I will get off my butt and get to it.
Also, head over to Joel's and congratulate him on becoming a grandfather.
But Dave is gone and I am ___________. (Unhappy about it).
Everybody say a prayer or whatever you do. For the baby, but also the lost one. He was the real thing.
