Rodney O. Lain died this weekend.

From the mac Observer:

quote:
We are very sad to announce the passing of TMO staff member Rodney O. Lain. Rodney died during the weekend; his family tells TMO that Rodney took his own life after a long battle with depression. Rodney is survived by his wife, Irma.

Rodney wrote to make us think, to make us laugh, and to make us angry. He usually succeeded at those goals, which made him one of the most-loved, and hated, writers in the Mac world. Rodney reveled in both, and he will be missed. Funeral arrangements have not yet been announced.


I know i will miss Rodney's writings a lot. They made me laugh, and they made me think. I had only met Rodney once, at a macworld in SanFran. he left a lasting impression on me. one that i will not forget. My Prayers go out to his family and his wife. I know i will miss him a lot. I loved him and his writings.

I didn't agree with everything he wrote as iBrotha, but I still enjoyed reading it. He was that good a writer. Although I fully understand depression and the things it can make you do, I'm a bit pissed off that he jumped ship and left people he loved behind
