Very sad news

If you read this blog, you probably also read Matt Zoller Seitz's The House Next Door. Mr. Seitz is dealing with an unspeakable tragedy, the loss of his wife, Jennifer Dawson. She leaves behind Mr. Seitz and their two children.

Mr. Seitz is an excellent writer, critic and thinker, and he is also a good friend of South Dakota Dark, having linked over here on many occasions. He's also spirited and friendly, and he runs one of the most interesting film and television blogs out there. I can't even imagine what he's going through right now.

Alan Sepinwall is going to try to keep the lights on at The House Next Door while Seitz is away, but don't expect him to be posting much over there for now, understandably.

Information on where you can send e-mails and cards to is here. Mr. Seitz requests that donations be given to the Red Cross in lieu of flowers. If anyone here would be interested in making a donation, please tell me in the comments thread. I'll get a Paypal account set up, and we can get something going.

All of us here at South Dakota Dark offer Mr. Seitz our condolences and sympathies.
