Terry Pratchett has died

Today I read with great sorrow that my favorite living author is no longer living. Terry Pratchett, creator of the wonderful, satirical Discworld books has passed on from this turtle to the afterlife. I do hope Death let Terry ride on Binky at the end.

I’ll be wearing lilac (at least in my thoughts) today.

Addendum – if you notice a new response header from my web server, this is what’s going on.
