Another blogger gone
The worst part about getting old is that people you know start dying at a much more rapid pace. I went pretty much most of life without having to deal with the death of close friends, but in the last few years I've lost way too many.
And now the blogger known as Bane, has passed away. I wasn't a big fan. In fact the man terrified me so much, I couldn't even read his blog. He ususally pissed me off and I was always afraid he would hunt me down and shoot me for disagreeing with him. But I did love him in my own way for his obviously fierce love of his family and his uncompromising honesty. I hate the word authentic, it's so overused, but if it ever fit anyone, it's Bane. I'll miss running into him in comment sections and cherish the run-ins I had with him.
My deepest sympathy to the family and friends who knew him well. Rest in peace Bane.
