    Or, Mike, I don't know, depression could also be a a result of brain chemistry not producing the right alchemy instead of unresolved external issues.

    Depression is often what happens when someone isn't successful at dealing with something difficult in their lives. I hope his humor helps him come to terms with whatever that is successfully.

    I've known Eric since the BYU days and consider him one of my best friends today. I'm glad that he followed me to Portland so I still get to have lunch with him on a regular basis. Great article and a fine summary of the man.

    It's hard to believe, I know, but he did manage to write for BYU's paper and be funny. You should check out his site and look at the old stuff (especially the ones that inspired angry letters). I wish we still had someone like Eric at BYU.

    "BYU humorist"? Is that one of those OxyMormons? (Sorry, Sunstone).

    I send all my family to Eric's "place". My "taste" in genre do not always agree with his tastes... but my funny-bone is filled to the brim and he always reports the movies accurately. I adore reading his written word!
