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.

JimWhiteGNV @emptywheel I'm having Halloween nightmares that Muschamp somehow beats UGA and possibly even FSU to get yet another year here.

emptywheel @JimWhiteGNV If nothing else it's pre-consolation for what will prolly be a drubbing at the hands of ol' noodle arm.

emptywheel @JimWhiteGNV No no no. We hire coaches who do well in other places, only to experience failure here. Just ask RichRod.

JimWhiteGNV @emptywheel Congratulations. I understand that the Wolvereenies are hiring both Foley and Muschamp tomorrow!

bmaz .@RKTlaw Right. Seriously, how often do DA's send grand juries to deliberate without draft indictment? But that appears to be McCulloch plan

bmaz RT @RKTlaw: @bmaz To summarize: "Usually we want an indictment. This time, not so much."
