In Memoriam Steve Gilliard

Steve Gilliard passed away a year ago. He is still sorely missed.

This blog got its start thanks to Steve. His analysis of Iraq and Afghanistan, and his ability to draw parallels with other conflicts was so impressive. Since we at La Casa de Los Gatos were dead set against the war from the start, we were inspired by Steve to educate ourselves and &mdash tentatively, at first &mdash begin writing about the war and attempting to analyze, in our own limited way, its causes and effects.

You were a great guy, Steve. A great writer, a great blogger, a fine, impassioned human being. Nobody kicked ass like you did. Nobody had a better nose for bullshit.

Read Steve's Compleat Works here.

Sardonyx, over at DailyKos, has a fine collection of other memorial writings.

Hallo The politicalcat,
It is so sad to loose such a wonderful person.
I feel it being so sad.

Greeting from Nairobi
