Greg McMullan, RIP

I haven't had anything to say about the tragic death of Greg McMullan (filkergem) in a house fire on Saturday night, because I haven't known what to say. I didn't know him particularly well, certainly nowhere near as well as my many friends who've posted condolences. You look at this and you think to yourself, "This is as bad as it gets."

And then a bit later, you realize that it's not. If there weren't all of these people there to mourn for him, to help comfort his family, that would be as bad as it gets, if no one cared.

In the end, no matter how much it hurts, it's always better to care.
