I got an email from Lactose the Intolerant’s sister on Saturday night:
I am his sister and have asked my family if anyone told his blog friends and no one said they had. I hope I’m in the right of doing this, but I thought you guys should know that he passed away Sept 28th of a heart attack. My family was worried that if they said anything his posts would get deleted, but I didn’t think you’d do that. Here is his obituary.
And here is a link to everything he’s ever posted at IMAO.
I don’t know what to say. I’ve never had a blogger I’ve respected pass away on me. I try to think of words, but they all seem stupid and inadequate right now. I’ll be posting more on this in the future, and also links to those who have, unlike me, found their words.
Meanwhile, I’m turning it over to you guys. Comments are open.
UPDATE 3:45 PM
I didn’t know this, but Lactose had a book on Amazon, if you want to check that out:
With home schooling becoming ever more popular, Uncle Sid brings his 16 years of experience dealing with hellions to bear in crafting this home schooling guidebook that will equip your own little hellions with the gritty, street smarts they will need to excel in the chaotic, urban landscape that is modern American society. For those who feel unqualified to home school their hellions, this book allows them to first teach themselves and then confidently educate the offspring the courts allege are theirs. The guide covers letters, mathematics, science, history, civics and even basic sexuality in a way that makes the knowledge accessible to the uneducated of all ages. To conclude, this is a home schooling guidebook that no sane parent would ever use to teach a child anything ever. (i.e. it is a parody)
