This just in...Sad news.

Frank McCourt-Author. (Age 78) August 19, 1930-July 19, 2009

If you've never read Angela's Ashes go get it tomorrow and read it immediately. Funny and heartbreaking. A classic of Irish-American memoirs.

The Irish Blessing
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Rest in Peace, Mr. McCourt.
