Since you're obviously on the internet, you've probably seen Randy Pausch's 'Last Lecture.' He died today from complications of pancreatic cancer. He was 47. You can watch the lecture, and read more here.
I've never met the guy, but I'm crying anyway. Life isn't fair. I think this has just made missing my friend Sue very real again. She was the most positive person I've ever known, and she died from breast cancer at 36. WTF? It just isn't right.
