The first line of his "Goodbye, friend" post, a tribute to liberal blogger Steve Gilliard, who recently passed away:
I've just returned to my NYC crash pad from burying Steve Gilliard. I'll be on a plane home in a few hours.
Tribute? Condolences to the family? Somber thoughtfulness for a deceased "friend?"
Shameless bragging about "crash pads" and jet-setting. Man, Kos is cool.
You've got to be kidding.
Update: A commenter took issue with this post, and pointed out that Kos did indeed pay tribute to Steve Gilliard, in more than one posting on his blog. I don't deny Kos' intentions or sincerity. Rather, it was interesting to point out the first sentence of his "goodbye" post, which was at best a poor choice of words for a tribute, ("crash pad,") and at worst, a sly, ingominious way to begin a post with the intention to express sadness and grief.
