Kevin's Dead Cat

After surgery sliced off an entire tumor and 1/3 of my tongue, plus six weeks of radiation therapy, I've been re-learning how to eat, drink, and talk with my newly re-constructed tongue and coping with side effects. But the cancer came back and I don't know what's going to happen next.

Goodbye, Ms. Chang

I just found out that one of my favorite authors, of one of my favorite books (The Rape of Nanking), shot herself in the head yesterday. I almost bought her last book this past weekend, and was actually thinking about her the other day.

Sometimes, I would feel ashamed thinking of her because we're about the same age, and I can't even bring myself to finish any of the manuscripts I started in the past ten years.

I was really looking forward to the book she was working on about soldiers fighting in the Philippines during WWII. God, this really blows.

Author Iris Chang found dead

LOS GATOS, Calif. - Iris Chang, a best-selling author who chronicled the Japanese occupation of China and the history of Chinese immigrants in the United States, was found dead in her car of a self-inflicted gunshot, authorities said Wednesday. She was 36.

Chang, who won critical acclaim for her books “The Rape of Nanking” and “The Chinese in America,” was found along Highway 17 just south of Los Gatos, Santa Clara County authorities said.
