Abram’s death is capturing an extraordinary amount of attention in the LA blogosphere. After news of his death broke this morning, two Facebook pages have already been set up–one a memorial the other to rename the Silver Lake Reservoir path “Marc Abrams Memorial Loop,”–and a memorial group-walk around the loop has been organized for July 25.
