Richard Janes, creator of Fishink.us, writer, poet, cartoonist, great blues guitar player and all around brilliant, funny and wise person, my beloved partner of almost 20 years, passed away Friday, September 28, 2012. It was a long, slow decline followed by a fast, peaceful and mostly pain free exit from advanced cancer. I will miss him every single day of the rest of my life. There will never be another like him.
I will leave this site active and try to post once in awhile, but meantime, please continue to enjoy the archives which are full of great articles, cartoons and music Rick wanted to share with you all.
He was a great and good man, and the world is a sadder place without him. In tribute to the work he did on this site for the past few years, if you are an American citizen, please vote for Obama and as many progressive Democrats as you can. If you are not an American citizen, please talk to any that you know and encourage them to vote Democratic.
Peace and blessings to you all.
