Love and Sympathy

My thoughts tonight are with the friends and family of librarians Kathy Krasniewicz and Kate McClelland, who were killed in a hit-and-run accident on their way to the airport after leaving ALA on Wednesday.  I never had the good fortune to meet Kate, but was lucky enough to have dinner with Kathy and a group of other librarians at ALA Anaheim last summer.  Kathy was a delight; I wish I'd gotten to know her better.  It's clear from the outpouring of grief in the blogosphere that these ladies were too good for words, and will be terribly missed.
