Pauly Fuemana: RIP

The passing of Pauly Fuemana (aka OMC) cannot not go un-noted at Elsewhere: but I have said my piece here at Public Address and so need not revisit it.

Other than to say this: in the coming months we will doubtless hear the customary gossip, rumour and innuendo about Pauly's recent years.

Some of it will be true.

None of it however should diminish what he achieved, albeit briefly.

Too far, too fast perhaps.

Yet how could Pauly -- or you or I, come to think of it -- be prepare for all that?

But certainly, for his family and children and friends, Pauly has gone too soon.

Too soon.

Too soon ............
