Ed Grothus, proprietor of the Black Hole of Los Alamos, died at home last night.
I made it out to Los Alamos twice last year, and talked a bit with Ed both times. He was the kind of eccentric old man we should all aspire to be someday. The world is a less interesting place without him in it.
I hope the Black Hole will remain in business, and I hope his Doomsday Stones will finally be erected.
