Todd Bachman Was a Gardening Guy

I just learned that the man who died as a result of being stabbed in Beijing was a hort man. He owned a plant nursery in Minnesota, had a horticulture degree, and served on the board of directors of many nurseries. Read more on my Mlive blog.


  1. I heard about the attack on the Bachmans. How terrible! The olympics are a wonderful effort at promoting unity amoung not only nations but mankind as well. To have them marred by something like this shows we have a long way to go. A simple man who loved flowers and plants should not have to end up like this.

  2. It makes the tragedy seem even closer to home. Six degrees of separation?

    I hope this will be the last awful event to occur there.
