Thank you, Dan Markel. RIP
Posted by Usha Rodrigues

I spent what snatches of time I could yesterday glued to the Internet, particularly Dan Markel's Facebook page.   He was such a force of energy and vitality, I can't seem to get it through my head he's gone.  I knew Dan personally from conversations about blogging and life, mostly at conferences, and mostly from a few years ago.  We started out in this business about the same time, and that creates a certain bond.  

As our careers progressed, I knew him mostly via Facebook, and what strikes me the most is how engaged a father he was.  The last post of his I read was titled Thoughts on Work-Life ImBalance from Those Left Behind.  Dan need have no regrets on this score--at least, the two sons he left behind knew that they were loved and cherished by him.  I know Dan was a formidable scholar, and that the world will miss his keen mind.  But the lesson I take from this senselessness is to follow his example with respect to the more important aspects of life.  Thank you for that, Dan.
