Comments: What a Long, Strange Yahrtzeit Its Been

I also learned of Jerry's demise in summer camp! One of the things i loved about camp was the discovery of hippie music like Grateful Dead and their neo-reincarnation in Phish. Summer camp, always a (miserable) good time.

I, too, learned of Jerry's death at summer camp. (I was working there at the time, not a camper.) At the time I was not so much into the Dead, but was (as I still am) a huge fan of Phish. Plus, unlike the girl in the Dead t-shirt, I knew who Jerry was.

Oh my god. Jerry Garcia's dead? For ten years? I guess he keeps making those ties from the grave like L Ron Hubbard keeps churning out crappy sci-fi books.
