In case you have not yet heard, the blogospshere lost one of its most grouchy critics.
Rob was one to read with a pound of salt, but he made you both smile and think. Yes, people might get angry. But he never cared what others thought. Fortunately. I found out as others did, through posts on blogs. They provided a link, so it seems it is not an urban legend. No evidence of foul play, and for those who had cause for concern also heard answering machine messages which led them to believe all was well. Incidentally, computer kept picking up comments. Details are sketchy, but it looks like illness. A memorial is planned, and there is word bloggers are going to participate. I'll let you know when I do.
