Ryan Francis

Behind the curve, as usual: there's been much coverage of the murder of basketball player Ryan Francis, and I'm glad the university is arranging for the funeral and ensuring that the team attends (and that they cleared it with the NCAA first).

The two saddest things about this are that it really was a case of wrong place, wrong time, including the fact that Francis was to have been given a ride by another friend, and that Francis' mother had been about to move to Los Angeles to keep her son away from Baton Rouge.  An awful turn of events.
