Here's my piece for Salon. I didn't really know it was being framed as an obituary but given the emotions that were flowing within me and a total lack of sleep last night (a bad cold on top of bad news), I'm pleased with how it turned out. My one regret: I should have worked Jody and Andy into the article. With a limited word count and a super-tight deadline (plus a head full of cold medicine) things fly by you. But I don't think that matters to them or anyone else right now.
Alex was even the extended subject on the local sports talk show in Buffalo this afternoon (WGR 55). He meant a lot to a lot of people.
