Richard's death left a yawning chasm in the Catholic blogosphere: things haven't quite been the same since. He is sorely missed.
Requiem aeternam dona ei, Domine, et lux perpetua luceat ei. Requiescat in pace. Amen.
This post initially began as a pointer to the Wayback Machine Internet Archive which allows users to see websites that have been removed from the internet (as long as they've been archived).
