This morning, NPR reported on research that shows (what those of us who actually listen to bereaved friends knew) that the Kübler-Ross stages of mourning don’t necessarily occur in the designated order: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance.
That topic will hereafter ever call to mind this post from Micah and Laura (I’m quoting it here, in case something bad ever happens to Micah’s archives):
[Micah]: Laura, I’m sorry, but Elisabeth Kubler-Ross is dead.
Laura: She is not! That absolutely sucks! Are you sure? Check again. Ah, what’re we gonna do without her? Well, I suppose it’s OK. Everybody dies.
Speaking of Micah, he points to Whispers in the Loggia, especially this post that announces that the Vatican web backend has gone Mac-native.
