Gathering my wits about me 
I'm still processing the deaths of Theresa Duncan and Jeremy Blake but a few things have struck me as odd thus far.

1). Jeremy Blake's Wikipedia page was recently edited (from a New York IP address) to include the information that "Blake's badly decomposed remains were subsequently found by a fisherman about 30 miles to the south of Rockaway Beach off the New Jersey shore." This statement is footnoted to an article that includes no such information and as of this writing there has been no confirmation that the body pulled Sunday from the ocean off New Jersey is Jeremy.

Also in the Wiki entry is this statement: Blake was the romantic partner of aspiring cultural critic and pioneering video game artist Theresa Duncan who, having fallen on hard times, killed herself the week before Blake took his own life. (Emphasis mine)

I'm unaware of any information that Theresa had fallen on hard times. For most people, a loving relationship, the respect of your peers, and a desirable New York City address do not constitute hard times. If so, please, send some hard times my way. Is this inside information or someone trying to shape the narrative?

2). On Friday, June 1st, Theresa posted a short poem by Sarah Hannah and linked to the young poet's obituary. Sarah Hannah, who was the same age as Theresa, reportedly committed suicide.

Age was not the only thing these two talented and doomed women had in common.

Could two people resemble each other any more closely without being twins? I've been unable to uncover any other links between the two women aside from their polymathic natures and tragic deaths. What the hell does this mean, if anything? Is this some sort of cosmic joke or is there a deeper message?

Authorities: Body found in ocean might be missing artist 

Theresa Duncan, RIP 
It is with great sadness that I report the death of Theresa Duncan and the probable death of her partner Jeremy Blake. Both are apparent suicides.

Theresa was a great friend of this blog and her insight and friendship will be missed. My condolences to her friends and family. I have no idea how long her blog, Wit of the Staircase, will remain up but, for now, her charm and erudition are there for everyone to see.

Here's another news story on the tragedy.

As you can imagine, the blogosphere has many comments on Theresa and Jeremy's untimely deaths, as well as some questions.

Rigorous Intuition.

Ron Rosenbaum.


This news has depressed me tremendously. Goodbye, Theresa. Thanks for everything.
