A very sweet professor who retired from my undergrad department was riding his bicycle in Boone and got hit by a car. The Watauga Democrat article is here. What gets me is that I just happened to sign on to Myspace, which I do about once a month, and happened to see the bulletin mixed in with all the ridiculous crap that gets posted. Does anyone have a status update?
I hadn't thought about Ed in at least two years, and this kind of thing makes me worry about all the other people I care about who I haven't thought about. But I know a guy who worries about everyone he knows all the time and he seems miserable. So, hmm.
