It's good to hear after the specious, alarmist reports on other websites said he "probably won't make it."

I'm glad he is ok and really that is all that matters, but I am still interested to hear the entire story...

In spite of all the criticism of the LJW, most of which I believe is unwarranted, the blogger who reported Lueken on his deathbed is the reason we need newspapers. The internet may be the most expansive source of information on the planet but it is also the biggest source of misinformation.
