Those who knew Tim Maroney—and old GEnie SFRT regulars, at least, should remember him—will, I think, be as bleakly appalled as I am by the news that he collapsed in the shower Thursday morning, was rushed to the hospital, and died shortly thereafter. He was 41 years old.
He was the only brother of Kevin Maroney, a regular in the comment threads here.
I don’t know what else to say.
Okay. I keep having this picture in my head of Charon shipping his oars, mid-Styx, and stalling the boat for an indefinite sub-eternity while Tim argues with Strom Thurmond. Strom’s uncomfortable, to put it mildly. Charon’s just trying to look like he’s not enjoying it as much as he is.
I know who I’m rooting for.
