I'm sorry to report that DUer Junkdrawer has passed away

I received a DU Mail from his wife last week, unfortunately since I was on vacation I only just got around to reading it. Here is the message:

I would like to announce the death of my husband Richard (AKA "Junkdrawer" on 13 May 2014. Rich died ostensibly as a result of blunt force trauma to the upper body after a head-on collision. Nobody else was injured. They thought Rich was going to make it--he was able to tell them his name, address, & date of birth. Once en route to the hospital, however, he began experiencing some difficulty. When he arrived at the emergency room, they tried to revive him two or three times. He didn't make it...couldn't even hang on until I got there. This goes to prove that simply because one is driving a Subaru Forester does not mean that one will walk away unscathed.

Rich was a true progressive and a realist--almost to the point of pessimism. He joined DU in 2002 and you all have been a part of our dinnertime discussions until he died. I do not think that many of the DU members know just how smart Junkdrawer was; he was scary-smart. He had been a math/physics major as an undergrad many, many years ago and got into computers in the 1980s. He once told me, "There is no playground greater than the one in my head," but I went ahead & married him anyway!

Richard was very concerned about the direction this country is headed. The watered-down liberal pabulum that has replaced any sort of true activism was distressing to him. Increasingly he found people on DU who were merely posing as liberals (I believe you all call them "Trolls". Often this would anger him. I was fond of saying, "Honey, if you're going to do intellectual battle, do intellectual battle with your equals." Very few people qualified.

So this is his goodbye to the Democratic Underground. He would want you all to remember one of his favorite quotes from Kurt Vonnegut:

"Here's what I think the truth is: We are all addicts of fossil fuels in a state of denial, about to face cold turkey. And like so many addicts about to face cold turkey, our leaders are now committing violent crimes to get what little is left of what we’re hooked on."

So it goes.

After a day of letting this awful news soak in, I am just shocked and so very sad to learn that Junkdrawer is gone.

My heart is breaking for Ms. Junkdrawer, I send vibes across this country to her, thoughts of comfort, strength, and peace.

We were privileged by his presence here at DU for so many years, now, tragically, he is gone too soon.

JD was a major contributor to the BBV discussion/efforts of a decade ago.

"Condolences" seems such an inadequate word to offer for such a agonizing loss.

We lost a beloved family member to vehicular homicide last fall; it just is a tough row to hoe, particularly when the justice system is so slow to react. I hope those he left behind have good memories and support one another, it helps a bit, anyway.

Such a sad and untimely loss. My deepest sympathies.

"Here's what I think the truth is: We are all addicts of fossil fuels in a state of denial, about to face cold turkey. And like so many addicts about to face cold turkey, our leaders are now committing violent crimes to get what little is left of what we’re hooked on."

Very sad to lose another DU member from the early days. Very sad for all of us. Thank you Mrs. Junkdrawer for your very thoughtful post ...its beautiful that you could take time to not just let us know what happened, but to also share how Richard felt about Du and our country. I feel the same. Blessings to you.

I remember him well and wondered why we weren't hearing from him for a long while.

He is remembered fondly.. and, losing another long time DU'er is very sad to this whole community who have been here long enough to know and remember who he was and read his posts and commented.

Wishes to the family, friends and all those who held him dear in their hearts.

Another gone off to a place of peace who contributed to this community who will be sorely missed.

I, too, married a "scary" smart man, and even now, after almost 25 years of marriage am awed by his intellect. I know Mrs. Junkdrawer will miss him more than words can convey, but I'll send my warmest thoughts her direction and hope that she will receive comfort and peace in time.

A sad loss for DU, and for our nation who needs smart, progressive people now more than ever.
