John A. Cieciel, 1949 - 2007



“John was a long time contributor to the news of the weird, coconspirator and eventually primary blogger behind, and the author of the original and brilliant overheard starbuck. Readers of this blog and anyone who had the pleasure of receiving John’s e-mail knew him as a generous sharer of information, a keen observer of American culture, and a wise and honest friend. John was proud of the accumulation of this site, which shall remain, a spark of light among the constellations.” (source)
