    Shit. I didn't know Finn at all but based solely on his opinions and the way he expressed him here I liked him. Condolences and thoughts out to his friends and family.

    That is truly sad, he had a fascinating mind and I enjoyed they way he argued his points here, even when we disagreed. Bye Finn.

  • Stephen Judd,

    When someone young, filled with ability and promise goes in this way, it really is a tragedy. I am very sorry for him, his family and friends.

    Bummer :(

    I really enjoyed his contributions. If anyone has contact with his family or partner, please pass on our thoughts.

  • Deborah,

    Here's a fantastic comment that Finn made. This was around about the time he first started commenting on Public Address.

  • samuel walker,

    nice link Deborah...

    fin:

    But I'm not left to my own devices, because of situations arrived at both accidentally and deliberately. For example, soon my delightful better half will be home, and she'll say something like "Jesus christ, did you write all that?" and look at me in slightly worried dismay. And I'll react to that and knock it off. Because let's face it, there's really very little actual real return beyond obsessive interest in these discussion threads and endless online political conversations either. Maybe that's why they're usually full of boys?

    oh crap, Jesus Christ Fin, Im glad you wrote all that :)

    Nailed it, obsessive interest, brilliant, thanks Deborah for the link.
