:: [Prev] RIP, Jim Capozzola [Next]
One of the first blogs I got hooked reading back in the day was The Rittenhouse Review, written by the funny and feisty Jim Capozzola (with help from Mildred the bulldog).
Always using his blog to help other bloggers, he linked to me a few times, and we corresponded for a while back in 2003 when I lost my job (he was planning to write a longer feature about the shitty Bush economy). But then he stopped blogging for a while, then I stopped for a while, and he and his site just slipped off my radar.
Alas, Jim Capozzola died last night. I had no idea he had been so ill. He helped shape the political blogging world, he was by all accounts a stand-up guy, and he loved his dog. The world needs more people like him. He will be missed.
