David Foster Wallace, R.I.P.

Those of you who haven't heard, David Foster Wallace killed himself Friday night. I only recently found out, because news of a writers death isn't exactly big news.

It's unfair to even speculate the amount of depression that someone is dealing with when they kill themself at the age of 46. My thoughts go out to his wife and family.

Wallace was by far one of the greatest writers of this generation; his work has influenced myself and thousands of others; I have no doubt that his masterpiece Infinite Jest will hold it's place as one of the greatest books ever wrote.

Like all the masters, he will live on in his work...
