One of my favorite bloggers, Dean Barnett, died today. He used to co-blog with Hugh Hewitt, and was a staff writer at The Weekly Standard. I'm grateful for his work in making me both laugh and think.
A few years ago he wrote a pamphlet on the disease that ultimately took his life: The Plucky Young Kid with the Fatal Disease: A Life with Cystic Fibrosis.
Update: Hugh remembers Dean.
