More Gary

Just a few more bits about Gary before he's laid to rest on Saturday.  Stephen Colbert of the Colbert Report did a simple but touching tribute on his show after Gary's death.  "How much will we miss him?" Colbert asked at the end of his show.  "Let's find out."  He produces a 20-sided die, rolls it, reads the face, and declares, "Twenty."

Former TSR compat Kevin Hendryx turned up a piece on Slate.

And Doug Niles' grown children found this amusing cartoon.  Too bad the drawing's not better.

While Brett Favre's retirement on the same day did overshadow Gary's death somewhat, there was still good coverage worldwide from what I can tell.  My wife noted, "I guess D&D is a lot more mainstream than I thought."  That was Gary; he changed the world.
