A blogger's legacy 

The blogging soldier Andrew Olmsted has died in Iraq, and left behind a post he had written to be published under just these horrible circumstances. Though it is only the fourth of January, Olmsted's posthumous note will probably stand as the most moving post written all this year. It will speak to many people for many reasons, including for its wonderful evocation of the human rewards of blogging.

Lay the green sod o'r me,
A soldier has come home.

Rest in Peace.
