Out of Dodge

Two months ago, Andrew Ian Dodge, “former US Senate Candidate Maine (Libertarian), former tea party coordinator, writer & rocker,” and keeper of the Best of Me Symphony and the Carnival of the Vanities, advised that there was a reason he wasn’t as prolific these days:

I have incurable cancer. We are trying to figure out the best course of action regarding chemo & my treatment. Kim Benson, my beloved wife, has been a rock throughout. We shall fight this with all our might.

He made it through this morning, and he had his Final Statement ready to go. He was forty-six years old, far too young to be dealing with cancer — especially since he’d beaten it once before.

    Old voice, from cleaner times – 2006, I think, when I first encountered him on blogs?
    It’s been happening way too often.

    One of those weird things: I googled him completely out of the blue yesterday.
