Why is the philosophy department losing so many good people? I really doubt that the accounting department has many tragedies like this. They all die in their sleep at 88. However, I have got to say.. I would much rather live a 25-30 year old life as a philosopher than a 100 year life as an accountant.
If anyone wants more information on this stuff, there are some photos of Ariel, Jen, Blake, and Scott and a myspace group page dedicated to them. I'm not sure, but you may need to add the group before you can view what's inside.
