Alexander McQueen

No photo right now, just a quick note.  My friend sent me the text - "Alexander McQueen killed himself!"  I was waiting for my train to London (Ontario) and in the midst of grading papers.  I had to call my mom.  She'd heard the news from a coworker, who also had received a text from a friend.  There are not many people with whom I can share the sadness - what a terrible, terrible loss.  First Isabella Blow, now Alexander McQueen.

Of the many things I've read so far, I think what Tim Blanks wrote on is the most heartfelt and poignant.
