Out Of The Blue & Into The Black: Sad Farewells & A Moment For Schacht

They give you this, but they gave us Schacht.

Hi there friends of the Emptywheel blog. The collective lost another longtime voice.

It’s better to burn out
than it is to rust
The king is gone
but he’s not forgotten.

Hey hey, my my
Rock and roll can never die
There’s more to the picture
Than meets the eye.
Hey hey, my my.

Our friend Dr. Robert Schacht. Knew him for years online, and then met him personally at Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport in a bar. Wow. One smart and fun human.

He never burned out, he never came to rust. Bob Schacht will never fade away.

Thank you Bob Schacht.

Vaya con dios and Aloha.

bmaz @emptywheel @noahbird11 There IS a Cheesehead bar not that for from here, but that game doesn't seem so interesting.

bmaz @emptywheel @noahbird11 Did you start in on the IPA early??? I want to tear my hair out. I looked for "NE Patriot bars here" with no joy.

bmaz It is not malignant enough for @CBS5AZSPORTS to punish their viewers by televising worst games imaginable, they also are unresponsive jerks.

emptywheel @bmaz @noahbird11 Well, that's sort of an interesting game.

bmaz @noahbird11 @emptywheel Yo, I wouldn't know because my viewer hating local @CBS5AZSPORTS has punished me with the Bengals/Texans bullshit.

emptywheel @bmaz Me pay attention? That's their job. Also, it's still in Lambeau.

bmaz @emptywheel Ahem. The Cheesers only become division leaders if you pay attention THIS week. One game at a time please!

emptywheel @TedLott They still have #1 rushing D. Against a team that really doesn't need to run the ball, ever. @nickmanes1

emptywheel Finding myself thinking ahead to next week saying, Well, if the Pats keep knocking off Division leaders... Defeatist? Overoptimistic?

emptywheel @nickmanes1 As a Pats-in-the-AFC fan, my first wish is no injuries on either side. @TedLott
