A blogger dies in Iraq

Here’s a link to the last post, written before his death, that blogger Andrew Olmstead wanted published in the event he died while serving in Iraq. He posted at the site Obsidian Wings as G’Kar, a character from Babylon 5. His choice of that character resonates with me as a fan of the show. The post is interspersed with some great quotes spoken through the series by that character as well as a few others, if you’re not already a fan of the show I can’t recommend it highly enough. And, it’s all available on DVD for you newbies.

What makes this particularly worthy of posting here are Andrew’s comments on the ephemeral nature of the web, that his last words will last only so long as someone continues to pay the hosting bill.
