I've been an avid reader of TBogg for quite a while now. I enjoy his schtick of caustic left-wing humor (humor from the left wing, not at the left wing), even if in the course of staying very close to the line between funny and poor taste he very occasionally crosses over it.
But there's another side to TBogg, that produces some really fine writing in a non-snarky tone. This post is probably the best-written thing TBogg's produced so far, which is all the more fitting since it deals beautifully with the sudden passing of hiss father.
Best wishes and condolences to TBogg. And a little admiration for a tribute well-done.
