A Sad Day in the Colorado Blogosphere

Andrew Olmsted, one of our very own Colorado bloggers, has been killed in Iraq:

Andrew Olmsted, who also posted here as G’Kar, was killed yesterday in Iraq. Andy gave me a post to publish in the event of his death; the last revisions to it were made in July.

Andy was a wonderful person: decent, honorable, generous, principled, courageous, sweet, and very funny. The world has a horrible hole in it that nothing can fill. I’m glad Andy — generous as always — wrote something for me to publish now, since I have no words at all. Beyond: Andy, I will miss you.

I didn’t know Andy very well beyond chance meetings at the first couple of Rocky Mountain Blogger Bashes. However, from what I did know, he seemed a likeable sort, easy to chat with and enjoy a beverage or two (or seven, it being RMBB, see) in his company.

Anticipating that he might be killed in the line of duty to his country, he prepared a final post to be put up on his eponymous blog. Here it is.

Today is my new “healthy me” reward day for a good week of workouts, so I have a beer in hand. Go grab one yourself and toast the memory of a man who served with honor and paid the highest price for his dedication to country.

Condolences to all his family and friends.
