I came home tonight and was going to post something all light and fluffy. Things are well here. I felt good and happy, I had a great night last night and a pretty good day at work. I took my quarterly reports downtown so I wouldn't be distracted by the triumvirate of time suckage in my apartment (TV, computer, bed) and I got them all done so I could fully enjoy the holiday I have tomorrow.
But I came home and learned that Shawn Matthews, of Korea Life Blog and the now deleted China Life Blog, committed suicide last week in Beijing by jumping off his apartment building.
I am shocked, shocked, shocked.
For a the sad story, go here.
I've got nothing else to say right now, except to reiterate. I'm shocked.
Kevin has some thoughts, though.
Condolences. Sadness. Shock.
