The Passing of a Legend

A lot has happened since the last time I posted. Most of it wasn't worth writing about, but there was one piece of news about which I feel compelled to comment.

As the eyes of the world looked on, one of the most recognizable figures in the world - and one of the guiding lights of the late 20th century - passed away following a brief illness. He was admired by people all over the globe, regardless of their faith, and was believed by many to be the inspiration behind the "Chicken Soup" series of books. By most accounts, he was a tough man. However it's nearly impossible to remember him without recalling how his name was also synonymous with tenderness.

The world mourns his loss.
