Farewell, Colleague

By now, most readers of this blog will have heard the sad news that Sean "Vile Rat" Smith was one of the 4 State Department employees murdered in Benghazi.

Sean and I did not cross paths in the game itself, only on the CSM. On CSM 6, he was exactly what he was in real-life; a quiet, sober, dedicated public servant. He didn't care about the limelight, he just wanted to get things done.

And now he's gone, dead at the hands of ignorance and intolerance, and from the hatred that always springs from those eternal sources of human suffering.

A fund is being set up to accept contributions to help Sean's family; the details will come out in a few days. Please do your part to lighten their burden. The money will help, but knowing that you cared will help even more.
