Sad news from across the pond. Ed Brayton, cofounder of Freethoughblogs, and owner of one of my few must-read daily blogs, Dispatches from the Culture Wars, is entering hospice care. He will in all likelihood be dead within a few weeks.
Ed Brayton has been a tireless defender of humanist values, has spent decades calling out the failings of the American justice system, and has constantly pointed to the inconsistencies and complete stupidity of the modern Republican Party.
I doubt very much if he ever visits this little corner of the internet, but if you do Ed, you will be greatly missed.
