Adam Yauch, R.I.P.

Sasha Frere-Jones on his New Yorker blog:

The ideal memorial is written from distance, a generous calculation of merit that proceeds honorably without abandoning accuracy. I have to apologize right now for being unable to give you that – Adam Yauch was a part of my childhood, an ambassador to America from our New York, which is now gone, as is he.

Gutted.
