I feel weird writing about bad news that is primarily "other people's." On the other hand, I feel weird posting upbeat con reports and not mentioning that there is really, really bad news I got last night when I got home from the con for the evening. I am trying to compartmentalize, and I am trying to let the person most involved deal with this in his own way, including talking to mutual friends when that seems appropriate. And I feel very sad and very helpless about the situation. There's nothing I could do if I was there anyway, but I wish there was.

(This is not about someone in my household, in case you were going to ask.)
