A year ago Sunday, Sasha Petraske died. His Wikipedia page is a disappointment. He deserved better from us as a culture.
I drank a Daiquiri in his honor. I'm drinking a Daiquiri right now. When you read this, wherever you are, I hope you resolve to join me in a Daiquiri at your leisure, to toast a man who would have us drink more sensibly, who treated our enjoyment of our brief lives with the seriousness it deserves.
