you've probably already heard the news

Is there anything crappier than hearing that one of your favorite writers has a disease affecting the brain? Well, yes, it could be worse -- as Pratchett is saying repeatedly, "I am not dead." (And he should know, being intimately acquainted with Death.) We have to hope he still has many years ahead of him in which to enjoy not being dead. Still... crappy, crappy news.
