A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

Much too young: There's an old joke that at a certain age the first thing you do in the mornings was check the obituaries. If your name isn't there, carry on with the rest of your day.

I'm 33. I don't check the obituaries. The odds are if someone my age dies, it's usually in a car accident or some industrial accident of some sort or as a result of some crime. I'll find out about it by reading the briefs, or the police blotter.

I don't check the obituaries. That's where old peoples' names appear. You start checking the obits after you've had your mid-life crisis.

This morning I got an e-mail from my dad, and I went to check the obituaries.

Lori Engelhorn Glazer, a girl I'd known since kindergarten, died earlier this month at the age of 33. The cause was breast cancer. She leaves behind a husband and two small sons.

Lori was a beautiful person -- inside and out -- and she'll be missed. Say a prayer for her family.

Rest in peace.

She seemed like a nice woman, using her law degree to do some good. Thanks for sharing that despite it being so sad.
