Three Degrees of Blog Separ...

Three Degrees of Blog Separation From Tragedy: When there are too many deadlines & other obligations, there just isn't much time for common Web-surfing-for-the-bloody-hell-of-it. So tonight I was strolling through Rick Bruner's site, followed his link to an Elizabeth Spiers post, which made me realize, rather dumbly, that I'd never really spent time at her Capital Influx site. So I poked around, with a smile on my face, and noticed her link list included a section called "MeFi-ers," or, as the rest of us might call it, "members of the group weblog MetaFilter." One of the links was for "Stavros," otherwise known as "stavrosthewonderchicken," a name I recall from back when I still read the site as someone who had either criticized me personally, or written several things I disagreed with.

So I went to check out his site, and discovered that Stavros' good pal Rick Gleason was one of the travelers mangled in the Bali massacre. He's alive, but not in very good shape, with burns all over his back and face, trauma in his heart and brain, and more. Stavros (real name Chris Kovacs) is using his blog as a clearinghouse for all information related to Gleason. Recommended reading, however painful, especially if you haven't felt any connection to the faraway bombing.
