A sad note reached me this morning via Patrick Pho of Metblogs, Doug Clifton, who wrote with us there for years, passed away last Tuesday. Doug was an excellent photographer and writer for Metblogs until his departure for the Chronicle of Higher Ed in 2007. He had a quick wit, an infectious laugh, and was always into something in Silver Spring.
He will be missed by all who knew him. His talent for programming, for all things electronic, was significant. We are all poorer for his departure.
I’m working to get in touch with the family, that we might offer something in his memory.
Peace, Doug. We miss you already.
