Bye, Randy

Saw this on the news today: Randy Pausch has passed away.

"I mean I don't know how to not have fun. I'm dying and I'm having fun. And I'm going to keep having fun every day I have left. Because there's no other way to play it," he said in his Carnegie Mellon lecture.

I read about him on Reader's Digest last year and it was so moving. I was facing the possibility of having heart surgery then - not at all a death warning and I was scared out of my wits. He was such an inspiration. Add me to the count of the millions of lives he has made better.
