Quite a few (they have yet to release a list) of my high school classmates are no longer alive.

Last night there was a party in Lincoln Park, Chicago. There were just too many people on the porch at the time, and with the weight it collapsed, falling several floors.

In total 12 people died (i believe... need to check the stats) and many many more were injured.

Among the dead was Sam Farmer, who was a bit of a fratty jackass, but nonetheless pleasant to me and in several classes. Although our relationship was nothing more than copying each others homework and occasionally getting high, it is really a shock.

May they rest in peace.
