Sad News from Ed Brayton

His Facebook Post:

"I'm giving up and calling in hospice. I just can't do this anymore. To those who know me in real life I love you and I'm sorry. I did my best."

He has been suffering from health problems for years. I always enjoyed his "Dispatches from the Culture Wars" column. He contributed so much more than that over the years.

Here's an article covering it.

1. Matt Dillahunty just announced this on Atheist Experience.

Very sad. His contributions to the atheist movement are greatly appreciated. A life well lived, a legacy to remember.

Blessings.
