:'( We Lost A Good One This Weekend: IRL Superhero Electron Boy, 14, Passed Away
14-year old Seattle cancer patient turned Make-A-Wish-Foundation superhero Erik Martin sadly succumbed to his disease (HEY -- FUCK YOU CANCER, SERIOUSLY) Friday, and yes, I'm writing this by touch because I can't see the screen. Rest in peace, Erik, you will be missed.

Thanks to Becca and Puwe, who both found solace in knowing Electron Boy lives on inside every little atom. Thanks, I needed that.
