Steve Gilliard, 1964-2007

It is with tremendous sadness that we must convey the news that Steve Gilliard, editor and publisher of The News Blog, passed away June 2, 2007. He was 42.

To those who have come to trust The News Blog and its insightful, brash and unapologetic editorial tone, we have Steve to thank from the bottom of our hearts. Steve helped lead many discussions that mattered to all of us, and he tackled subjects and interest categories where others feared to tread.

Please keep Steve's friends and family in your thoughts and prayers.

Steve meant so much to us.

We will miss him terribly.

Site update: Steve condition reports

Jim in LA here with a site update: I just spoke with Jen and a member of Steve's family has requested that no further communication about Steve's condition be communicated with his readership through this site, or in any other method.

We will comply with the request - so if you want to know about Steve's condition, there won't be any further update until he's able to communicate it himself.

Thanks for your understanding.
