I feel like I ought to say something about this, now that the news is apparently out, but for the moment everything’s coming out as a string of profanities. So I’ll limit myself to this: (1) Brian Beutler is awesome. If you read his phenomenal reporting, count yourself lucky. If you know him, count yourself even luckier. (2) You can add your wishes for a speedy recovery at the first link. I’m not the praying sort, but if you are, it couldn’t do any harm.
Update: If you want to do something, you can donate blood on his behalf.
