No one knows what happened to Boogaard. You say it almost as an afterthought, but it is too soon. Nobody would say with certainty that they know what has happened and yet there is still a frenzied rush in the blogosphere to be the first to presume, assume, place blame, and publish. Such early speculation is both premature and pointless -- certainly irresponsible -- no matter how well-crafted and well-intentioned the author believes themselves/their prose to be. Unfortunately this is just another example of "journalists" making up their minds and filing their stories and columns publishing their blog posts before having all of the facts...before having ANY of the facts. And for what? What prize is won for being first? I guess there is a belief that there will be a "winner," the most eyeballs will be scored, granting the best chance to attempt to shape whatever "debate" ensues - whether it's warranted or not. This is sadness compounding sadness. A man is dead; isn't that sadness enough? (Featherly's Kevblog: Boogaard's Sad Death)
