jim capozzola RIP

susie sent me an email telling me that jim capozzola died today. i wasn't really close to him. he was a regular at the philadelphia drinking liberally for the first year or two. i hadn't seen him for a while and had no idea that he was on life support.

he was one of the first "famous" bloggers i met in person (the rittenhouse review was one of the earliest political blogs on the left), and he was always really kind and supportive of baby bloggers like myself.

here's susie's tribute and duncan's and ginger's and (now plagerizing off of susie's list) jmhm's and pz myers' and general jc christian's and elayne's and demosthenes' and avedon's and skippy's and roger ailes' and max's and ezra's and signorile's and an especially personal one from richard and albert's and karl's and jeralyn's and digby's and tbogg's and wampum's and kevin hayden's and the talking dog's and the crone's and sir oolius' has a nice photo and mithras' and matthew yglesias' and scott's and brendan's and everyone else's that i missed.
