>Bad news reported on Slattsnews that the terrific blogger Charles Murton of the highly regarded Diogenes Lamp has succumbed to cancer.

David Revelman called tonight with the sad, unexpected news that Charles Murton had died. Charles, master of the Diogenes Lamp blog and creator of the incomparable Bunny Champers, had been in a lengthy battle with cancer. He was a scholarly, witty and magnanimous chap and I regret we didn’t enjoy more of our irregular lunches in which the troubles of the times were healed amid many amusing reminiscences. He will be missed.

Charles was a man of clear vision, strong moral standards and a wry sense of wit.

RIP, Charles Murton.
