One of his Twitter friends yesterday sent out a gorgeous photo of a Michelangelo sculpture in a tweet, and in the reply, I copied his Twitter handle because I knew it was something he would also enjoy seeing. She realized I hadn't heard what happened, and so she sent me a DM and broke the terrible news.

The art history community is stunned by his death as much as we are. If you are on Twitter and check the hashtag #RIPHasan, you'll find links to some lovely tributes. You'll also find some amazing art history websites.

Edit: @tk: ROFL at that pic! How perfect!

From MST3K's spoof of "Hercules Unchained"--heard as Roman medic soldiers carry off an unconscious Greek Hercules on a 1950's Army green canvas stretcher: "Hi, we're IX-I-I. Did somebody dial IX-I-I?"
