Aaron Hawk, author of UppityNegro.com, was found dead recently, victim of an apparent suicide. When he chose to be funny, he could be laugh-out-loud funny, and that's why I kept track of him. I was also deeply intimidated by him, because he could seem so damned angry sometimes. Looks like it may have gotten the better of him, which is a damned shame and a terrible waste. Not much you can say at a time like this, we can only express our deep condolences to his family.
So if any readers have a family member who gives birth in the next... oh, let's see... the next week or two, and the kid has strange hair and a glint in their eye, say hello for me, eh? And here's to wishing the next time around gets him closer to the peace we all strive for.
