Terrible News

Ashley Morris has passed away, according to his family.

News, I’m sure, as it becomes available, but for now … just stunned. Ashley was just over here at my house for dinner a couple of weeks ago, filling up the house with laughter and noise and reminding me not to take any crap from anybody I didn’t think was worth my time. The things he wrote are going to ring in my head for a long while, his passion and anger and joy and his love, above all, for his wonderful city.

Deepest condolences to those who knew and loved him.

    Scout and A, thanks so much for the bridge you built to the NOLA bloggers. To the extent I knew him, it was possible only because of that bridge, and I am grateful.
