RIP Steve Gilliard

Steve Gilliard was a remarkable presence in the progressive blogosphere. And now he is gone. One thing I really appreciated about Steve was he was passionate and committed, yet also realistic about politics and people. I'll never forget the discussions and lessons about military strategy Steve led at dKos before Bush launched his war. My condolences go to Jen and the rest of Steve's family and friends.

Kevin Hayden has written a wonderful eulogy and gathered a number of tributes from other eloquent bloggers who knew and loved Steve.

Steve's death is a terrible loss to our community. He was an amazing writer, at once scathing and humane, and everyone touched by his work and life will miss him.
