KANSAS CITY'S GREATEST BLOGGER GREG BECK FOUND DEAD!!!
That's what Chronic is reporting: The wonderful dude behind Death's Door died over the weekend.
This is a devastating shock to the local blogosphere.
I'm almost hoping that it's not true but the details seem pretty sound. Folks are saying he had a heart attack.
R.I.P. to the only blogger I ever desperately sought out to meet.
Here's what might be one of the last links I ever post to his blog.
Death's Door was the boldest blog in KC and part of my inspiration to covert this web presence to a blog.
Damn, this really is a shocker. Maybe I'll find more appropriate words later.
The best way to learn about his writing is to read his blog but those of you who've been around KC's Internet scene for a minute might remember when Beck won "BEST LOCAL BLOG in The Pitch's Best of Issue 2004. That was when I first met him and realized that he was one of the best bloggers and human beings I've ever met via the Internets. I'm kinda glad he's the only blogger who has ever bought me a beer.
