Gary Webb, RIP

Went to Marc Cooper's blog today and read with sadnessthat Gary Webb committed suicide. This sucks. There were many of us in the Bay Area who canceled subscriptions to the Mercury News because he got screwed as badly as he did. "Dark Alliance" was a brave piece, and all the more so because it was published in The Mercury, which was a pretty middle of the road paper at the time(it may still be, I haven't read it since, well...)
