    Sad news. He was a good writer. Didn't know the guy though, I'm sure many of you here do.

    Holy crap. He was a funny guy and did a great job. This really sucks.

    I had to call him at home once with a copy-editing question, and his answering machine cracked me up.

    Knew him for close to 25 years. Good guy, good writer, great reporter.

    Nice tribute by former Detroit News football writer Mike O'Hara. He and Kowalski were very close.

    Did a radio interview this morning, filed a story and his fiancee found him in the shower.

    That's terrible. Sending thoughts to his family and friends inside and outside the business.
