Acidman, R.I.P.

Three years ago, I used to read Rob Smith's Gut Rumbles blog fairly regularly, about once a day. I had discovered it via Glenn Reynolds's blog roll and came to enjoy the fellow's biting, humorous commentary on the issues and his reflections on his life. After college, I drifted from daily reading and, since then, have checked in only a handful of times, enough to gather that he had been having some alcohol and other medical problems. I don't know what compelled me to visit Gut Rumbles the other night, but I did -- only to learn that Rob died this very week. I can't claim to have been as devoted a reader as many who are flooding the site, but I am saddened nonetheless.
