Just heard that Mark Dailey passed away this afternoon.

Mark Dailey was probably the first media reference that I understood as a kid. "That deep voice that comes on during the credits and promos on CityTV belongs to a news anchor.  That's neat."  It was a small step into a wider world of associations.

Later, when I was, like, fifteen, I remember realizing that I would one day read a headline like this.  "Everybody dies" is one of those conclusions you inevitably arrive at once you start realizing the interconnectivity of the world around you.  It was like a bookend on the original thought.

I didn't expect to read it for awhile yet, though.  It's much more upsetting than I thought it would be.
