Going to work in D.C. on a federal holiday is never fun. Other than the great commute, there’s not much to like about the city when it’s practically deserted and most of the stores are closed. Today is worse; we found out that one of our most respected partners passed away yesterday from liver cancer. He was three days shy of his 36th birthday, and he has left behind a wife and three young children generic vytorin.

I guess it’s just part of being in my mid-20s, but I seem to be increasingly confronted with news like this about people I know. It’s probably a combination of my expanding number of acquaintances and our increasing exposure to risk and disease as we get older. I have heard of close friends, parents of friends, and coworkers all experiencing loss in the past year, and the pace doesn’t seem to be slowing. Of all the ways they have died, none of them scare me as much as cancer does.
