Scott Van Vliet Once a Developer, Always a Developer

I awoke this morning to morning to a weird message from my friend Jason.  He mentioned that he'd heard a radio station announce that Mitch Hedberg died!  When I heard his message, I frantically searched the Internet for validation (or hopes that it was an April fools joke.)  I could find nothing.

Then, about 10 minutes ago, I Googled his name and found this link.

It is a sad day for sure.  My good friend Warren introduced me to Mitch back in 2001.  He's witty one-liners were unforgettable, and I've shared his comedy with many of my friends.  His career had only just begun to blossom, and it's sad to say goodbye.

The cause of death is still unknown - but some say it may be drug related.  Mitch was only 37; much too young to die.  It's a sad day for all of us, indeed.

omg this is the worst news I've heard since Hunter S Thompson decided to take his own life. Mitch was my 2nd favorite comedian (Eddie Izzard being #1)...unfortunately I'm inclined to think it was drug related as well. Simply awful.

Mitch made me laugh harder than anyone ever has before. I can't believe he's gone. Sad day indeed.

This is a real shame indeed, such a wonderfully talented comedian cut down by drugs. All I gotta say is, if you play you pay, plain and simple. And to think, Mitch could have gone farther than he already has with the talents God gave him if he had not gotten involved with drugs.
