Not just a health problem

Postby Ferry Fey » Fri Jul 08, 2005 1:59 pm

It was very dismaying to read the page at <!--EZCODE AUTOLINK START--><a href="http://www.andythanksyou.com/">www.andythanksyou.com/</a><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK END--> , and I suggest that you all should read it.<br><br>Andy was not able to have his originally scheduled operation in May for which the Internet community had raised $31,000, due to PayPal not letting the transaction go through, evidently because of some pressure put on it that Andy was just faking pancreatic cancer. Sons of bitches.<br><br>I didn't encounter Andy online until this spring. There are so few "voices" on the internet that shine so brightly as his did, and I try to pay attention when I encounter them.<br><br>His energy and hard work will be missed. His example can and must be taken up by all of us who believe in democracy and truth and fair play.<br><br>Let a thousand Andys bloom.<br><br> <p></p><i></i>

ah, geez

Postby jpuma » Fri Jul 08, 2005 4:23 pm

way, way back in 2003, i was a regular at a local subway sandwich shop, which happened to be just a few blocks away. one day, while i was ordering my usual, the red-headed manager, a really really nice guy named Andy, asked me if i wanted some material on black-box voting. already familiar w/it, we chatted for some time, and he gave me a card (this was back when he was still with the sinister bev harris). i remember thinking how cool it was that this really nice subway manager was passionate enough about the subject to chat it up w/his customers! but then, i guess that's seattle for ya . . . .<br><br>eventually, both andy & i moved on, but every time i lurked on du (i still do, but i've never registered), i made sure to keep up w/andy's posts. it was a real unexpected shock to read he'd passed on, prolly because i knew him as 'the subway guy' long before i knew him as 'the black box voting guy.' in a world of cynics, assholes and evil bastards, andy was one of the truly good ones. <br><br>Requiscat in Pace, Andy! <p></p><i></i>

I didn't know him, I only witnessed the outpouring of love and support in the DU community. That alone brought tears.<br><br>I'm very sorry for everyone who was close to him, and for the community. <p>PW</p><i></i>
