Can it be true? Did our very own Anon.r, blogger at Super Happy Fun Blog, meet his demise?
I'd taken his blog out of my bookmarks a month or so ago because he hadn't posted in over a month. Went back there today to see if he'd posted anything new and he still hadn't- the last post being made July 23. Checked the comments on his last post and found this:
"We regret to inform you that the man known as Anon.R.mous died a hero while fighting a blaze in southern California. His name is being witheld at the request of family, nontheless I will say that he was a firefighter often sent to many places in the country both to fight fires and train others to fight fires. He died a hero, and will be fondly remembered by those who knew him."
Is this for real? The only thing that makes me wonder is I got the impression he lived in Arcata and I don't recall hearing of any locals that were killed in this summer's fires. I was also under the impression that he was a truck driver since he'd be gone for periods of time. Maybe he wasn't?
