    And now it's a memorial thread. Muad passed away in the middle of the night. He was a good and passionate man, ornery at times, but never one to shy away from saying what he thought was right. The consumate Wordforger.

    Halftime's over. :(

    I'm not a religious man (obviously), but I still can't shake the feeling that this temporary life we have isn't all there is. In an infinite universe, one that quite possibly spawns its own, in a potential multiverse with possibly a dozen (or more) dimensions, I have a hard time seeing anythnig as permanent. Even death.

    Love it or hate it, I figure his reenactor unit will put together a "military funeral." It's what he would have wanted.

    Every time I saw this thread had been posted in I was worried this might be the news. Happened rather more suddenly than anybody could expect. :(

    That was quicker than I expected. :( Very sad. At least we cleared our differences before he passed.

    RIP mate.

    Thinking back to the early days here, Muad was one of the first people that challenged me to think outside of the narrow-minded mentality I had about....well many subjects, but of course we bumped heads about the South. But then, I got to know the guy and see that there was more to him than just that. I wish he hadn't left the board last year, but I'm glad he was able to make piece here at the last.
