Yeah I said there weren’t going to be updates today but alas this one is important enough to get me onto the computer. I’m sad to report that Joel Rosenberg has died:
On Wednesday afternoon, June 1, 2011, Joel had a respiratory depression that caused a heart attack, anoxic brain damage and major organ failure. Despite the very best efforts of the paramedics and the team at Hennepin County Medical Center, Joel was pronounced brain dead at around 5:37 p.m. Thursday June 2nd, In accordance with his wishes, he shared the gift of life through organ and tissue donation.
Joel was a man who could polarize anybody, you either liked him or you didn’t. Whether or not you liked him though it can’t be denied that he did a lot for the carry movement here in Minnesota.
