Andrew Olmsted Killed In Iraq

Andrew Olmsted — active duty soldier, blogger, and writer for the Rocky Mountain News — was killed in Diyala Province, Iraq.
I didn’t know Andrew personally, but I was familiar with his writing, and I feel like a hole has been punched into the world.
His friend and blogosphere colleague Hilzoy at Obsidian Wings has published “his final dispatch from beyond”:http://obsidianwings.blogs.com/obsidian_wings/2008/01/andy-olmsted.html. Leave some kind comments for his friends and family.
