Dennis Lane was killed early Friday. The Sun has a story. Dennis wrote the Tales of Two Cities blog, and he was wonderful to me from the moment that I started HowChow.
Dennis and I traded links and emails. He answered questions. Using the handle Wordbones, he also demonstrated a way to write with meaning and edges, but without the rancor and cheap shots that can infect blogging. Dennis said wrote what he felt. He just kept the humor and perspective in his writing that he had in real life.
Dennis had a real history in Howard County, which made him far more valuable than a voice who had moved here a few years ago. I always appreciated his welcome and his blogging example, and I am glad that I told him.
For more about Dennis, look at TJ on The Rocket Powered Butterfly. I wrote short because I knew that I could write well. TJ did much better and ended with a Wordbones-style link that made me laugh and think about Dennis. People are writing on Twitter. Start with the HoCoBlogs timeline because JessieX is retweeting and responding to people.
