Today I learnt (from a Mensa magazine, of all things) that Isaac Asimov died of AIDS. Apparently he contracted HIV in a blood transfusion in 1983. His wife didn't release this fact until years after his death in 1992. And I didn't find out until now.

It makes me feel so sad to hear this. Maybe it's the Hildegard of Bingen I've been playing as I try and clean up the apartment, but the more I think about it, the sadder it makes me feel.
