Huh. Not sure about the hate in the comments considering the alternatives. At least it's not another "23 reasons to be self conscious about eating or drinking out because one deranged writer assumes all service professionals are as callous, judgemental and uptight as she is." This, on the other hand, was a well written, well thought bit of opinion that presents a strong case for its premise. I was unsure at first, but it would be the most satisfying way to honor the character, continue the pattern and ultimately hand the reigns over to the new generation of characters. Consider me convinced and solidly in the Solo death camp (that may need a better name before we make up t-shirts or anything). Well done.
