A sad story that I saw on the web, but I thought I’d pass it along.

John McConnell — the name might not really mean anything to you which is EXACTLY why I’m passing this story along — died today in Columbus, Ohio.

I never met him, never knew him or even read his story before five minutes ago (although I know Doug MacLean who worked for him until last year).

He sounds like he was a cool, old dude. I wish I had met him and chatted with him while he was still here.
