Sadness. Surfer Girl's made her last post, saying that the point of her blog was to "force folks to pay attention to important things going on in the real world and encourage them to become activists for social and political progress. I probably failed miserably, but at least I tried."
You didn't fail, lady. Our newsreader's been full of politics for months thanks to you. And you always made us laugh. And you were on the money most of the time, which is more than can be said for half the fucking jokers given to pouring crap into our hard drives every day.
We salute you. RIP.
