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.

emptywheel @LauraClawson No. But Indiv A would also (as I noted) stick out, as a person bringing in $450K in bribes in town where median is $90K.

emptywheel @ErrataRob @puellavulnerata I'm at 30% veg, 18% vegan. Maybe they'd know I'd offer humanely raised meat for dinner?

emptywheel @LauraClawson If he did what we assume he did does Indiv A have the right to his or her privacy given the extortion?

emptywheel Misconduct against Indiv A happened "years earlier" when Hastert and A discussed it in 2010. Hastert was teacher/coach until 1981.

emptywheel @bungdan Yes, and there have been past allegations abt Hastert that would be rather alarming for a coach, which indictment mentions.

emptywheel Median income in Yorkville is $83,059. Indiv A was making 5 times that from his or her Hastert bribes.
