I only know of Johan Ismail through his weblog. His sometimes witty, most times succinct and bold account of current affairs was a refreshing read. I can fully comprehend the loss felt by fellow bloggers at PPS who are grieving at the demise of Johan. He must have been an enormously well-liked person for such a heartfelt outpouring of sadness and respect. His passing on is a great loss to the Malaysian blogging scene. My deepest condolence to Johan?s family for their loss. May he rest in peace.
