The wit of the staircase.

"A need to tell and hear stories is essential to the species Homo sapiens--second in necessity apparently after nourishment and before love and shelter. Millions survive without love or home, almost none in silence; the opposite of silence leads quickly to narrative, and the sound of story is the dominant sound of our lives, from the small accounts of our day's events to the vast incommunicable constructs of psychopaths."

--Reynolds Price

These seem to have been Theresa Duncan's last words, posted to her blog on July 10, the day that the LA Times reports she was found dead in her East Village apartment. A week later her boyfriend, Jeremy Blake, was seen walking into the ocean. No one has seen him since.

Ron Rosenbaum is asking questions about their deaths, here, here and here. Foremost: Is Blake really dead?
