    Big Reds fan is fighting the good fight.

    My brother is in the hospital, fighting for his life. Like the rest of the family, he's a big Reds fan. Now, he's struggling to stay alive. This is something I feel a little weird sharing here, but some of you guys and this place in general have been a source of enjoyment and friendship for me over the last 14 years. Therefore, it seems you should know what my family member is up against.

    Positive thought beamed your way.
    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.

    My condolences.
