David Foster Wallace Dead

I was shocked to read this evening that writer David Foster Wallace committed suicide on Friday at his home in Claremont, California. While I didn't like everything he did, his books of essays, including A Supposedly Fun Thing I'll Never Do Again are great reads. He was an absolute real talent, and in passing, a tangible loss to American contemporary literature.
