This is off topic, or maybe not. I found the memorials for Ductape Fatwa. Thank you for providing trails to them. I never met him, though I knew his presence, and I wept to learn of his passing. He encouraged thinking, to put it mildly. I left a eulogy and my prayer in the comments of his last post.

I'm glad you found his memorial page on twitter. I am sure that whoever set it up would be delighted if you and others around the Internet tubes would follow it. In the brief couple years that I got to know him, I learned a great deal. Agree or disagree with his positions, there was no doubt that he could definitely make one think. I believe he would have been fascinated with all of the social media that have exploded since his passing and I am sure he would have found a way to make his presence felt on Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, and so forth - to the delight of me (and quite a few others) and the consternation of others (conservatives, Dem partisans, and all the usual suspects).

If you have not found it, Dove's last post on her blog In Flight was an extended portion of a collaborative fictional piece that she and Ductape Fatwa had been working on. She had hinted that there were more portions that she would be posting, but nothing became of that. I emailed her a couple times but she never replied - there was a bit of a falling out among the circle of friends Ductape Fatwa cultivated a few months after he left us, and I fear I said something that so offended Dove during that time that she will likely never speak to me again. I wish I knew what it was. :( So it goes. 

Thanks for stopping by.
