Ben notified me around late afternoon, his time, that he has been taken to the hospital - but as of now I don't know any more than that. He did say there were "tubes and wires everywhere". Let's hope he'll recover soon, and please keep him and his family in your thoughts.

As his ability to stay in touch dictates, I'll keep you updated.

He's already back home and recuperating, thankfully. Long and short is it seems there was some physical episode that the brain took as a signal to shut down much of the nervous system, but what caused it isn't clear, and they checked everything they could possibly check and then some. One supposes the proper technical term would be a "glitch".

Anyway, he's not 100% yet, and is on alert lest the issue should reassert itself. But fingers crossed, and here's hoping Ben'll bounce back to continue his glorious reign of moderatorial despotism and tyranny for many years to come.

And Ben must regale us with the details of his harrowing encounter with the unknown and unexpected. We could use a good story.
