For a day that started out with “You’re going to die,” this was turning out all right

Mike Celezik, news reporter and sports columnist for MSNBC, a contributor to the Today Show, and one of the right wing's despised "lame stream media," died today following a year-long battle with T-cell lymphoma. Mike was a true journalist, striving mightily to be objective in reporting the news, all the while recognizing the irony and wishing to interject some reason. 

Somewhat over a year ago, when first diagnosed, Mike did what most any hard core journalist would do. He reported on it. On August 19th, Mike made his last entry. It is worth reading.

UPDATE: It appears that Mike was a fan of PZ Myers.
