I can't break the habit, like so many others who read Lex every day. So I still go there even though I know I won't find any more o' the Good Captain's tales o' derring-do, his astute opinions, or his potent dry wit to begin my day. It's just a habit...
But I found something of value there today, as I did every day for the past eight years or so. This, from commenter yaJames:
Have you seen this morning’s Sacramento Bee article? http://www.sacbee.com/2012/03/12/4330119/atac-mourns-the-loss-of-capt-carroll.htmlThe article quotes the CEO of ATAC about the accident, and about tributes to Lex. It’s the first time I’ve seen the funeral arrangements published. (March 27th in San Diego.)It also links to http://www.atacusa.com. They’ve turned their web-site into a memorial page.
So I went to ATAC and the memorial page they've posted is truly a work of art. At the very bottom of the page you'll find this:
I had to take two screen shots because all those tributes... they're active links on ATAC's page... don't fit in a single capture. One small correction: the comments and condolences at Lex's place are up to 1,457 this morning.
