…I would be remiss if I didn’t make note of the fact that the world has lost a bright and shining star. Author Sir Terry Pratchett has passed on, and the world is the sadder for it. I wish I had discovered him years earlier, but his books made an enormous impact on my life in recent years. The Wee, Free Men and I will drink a toast in his honor tonight, and maybe even carry off a sheep or two. We will never forget him, and long may the great turtle swim on, carrying DiscWorld far and wide, forever.
