A Death in the Eve Online Family

I don’t play Eve Online, but in case folks hadn’t heard, one of the US consulate in Libya’s employees who was killed was a longtime player, and a longtime commenter on Something Awful. They put up a tribute to him.

It sounds like he was a diplomat in the best sense, both online and in regular life. Such people are valuable in the world.

Blessed are the peacemakers. Blessed are the debonair/meek.* Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for justice.

* Some French translations of the Beatitudes render “meek” as “debonnaire,” literally meaning “of good manner.” Heureux les débonnaires, car ils hériteront la terre.
