with people whose work I really like dying too soon.  I know, because it's all about me, right?  Well, yes, up in here, it is.

David Foster Wallace has died.  I am confident that in years to come I will still be looking back in frustration and wondering what he might have written, the same way I wonder what Kirsty MacColl might have sung, or Bill Hicks might have said.

When people I know have died, thankfully not many of them young, I'v missed the person and my relationship with them.  Their wasted promise is just a pale also-ran in the grief stakes.  But I didn't know these people and so, without the immediacy of personal loss, it's the work that I regret.
