It is with a saddened heart that I tell you I just found out that Newbius of the Newbius Papers passed away suddenly on Tuesday. I got sad news over at MArooned.
I never met the man, but read his blog fairly often. It was one with good commentary and with the cartoon Day By Day inset on a regular basis. Newbius' final post there was on March 13. It seems the blog content cannot be accessed from the main right now page but you can look at older posts by clicking on the link to his last post then working you way back using the 'older post' link at the bottom of each post.
My thoughts, prayers and well wishes go out to his family and loved ones.
All the best,
