Ed Champion posted remarks from writers about David Foster Wallace's death. Ed asked if I'd like to contribute and I declined. I replied:
"Thanks so much for asking me, but in this case I frankly don't feel able. I really don't know what to say--I've been less than well since I read about it last night. The idea that someone who *thought* so much concluded that he ought to hang himself is terrifying."
And that is still really all I have to say about it.
