Still not being fully sourced by multiple outlets yet, but it appears the news is out there.

Wow, that really saddens me. That JSTOR incident was a joke. :frowning:

Definitely one of my heroes. This is so sad.

In the interest of keeping things like this from happening, I want you all to know I care about you and if you ever have thoughts about suicide and need someone to talk to, you can call me. Seriously.
