Dammit, this freaking sucks. Terry Pratchett has Alzheimer's disease. Obviously, it sucks for anyone to suffer this debilitating disease, but I love Terry Pratchett. I wrote to him once and he actually wrote back. I like big important people who don't act big and important.
Glad to hear he's facing it with the kind of humor we'd expect from him... Also glad to hear his stories are being adapted for the small screen... I saw some of the cartoons based on his stuff, but not live action.
