Michael again here.
Brian Micklethwait, the owner of this blog, died this morning of lung cancer. We are all greatly saddened by this terrible news. He will be missed.
Blogmaster Michael here.
Brian is presently in 24 hour care, after having some radiotherapy recently. This has after-effects, sadly, and he is therefore doing it a bit rough at the moment. Hopefully these after-effects should subside and he shall hopefully be feeling a little better soon.
He wrote a short piece for Samizdata recently on the subject of friendship, which in many ways recounted familiar experiences, for me at least.
This is Brian’s blogmaster Michael here. Brian has just called me to tell me that he is unable to post at the moment because his home internet connection is not working. He will resume posting when it is fixed. We are not presently sure how long this is going to take.
