I'm going to miss the Whale, and like Dick Cain so eloquently said, I'll miss him most because I never actually got to meet him. I was looking forward to my turn at putting him up for the night, listening to him "talk funny in exchange for food, shelter, chrome or female charms." I had told him he was going to have to settle for food and shelter at my place as my wife doesn't take kindly to being used as bartering material. I sent him email this morning that he'll never receive.
What a strange century we live in. I have neighbors I could throw a rock through their window from my back yard and I don't even know their names -- yet across the globe here is this guy I've never seen (other than a gif or jpeg image) and I'm moved to tears when I heard the terrible news. Ironic.
