Founder of Arts And Letters Daily has Died.

Via the Submitterator, BB reader C. White says,

Dennis Dutton, who founded and edited the website, passed away on 28 December 2010. Dutton was born in 1944, and was also a professor of philosophy at the University of Canterbury, New Zealand. He was a founding member of the New Zealand Skeptics. Although Dutton is “nearly irreplaceable” in running Arts & Letters Daily, a longtime collaborator will continue to produce the site.
