We are very sad to share the news that longtime Cannonballer and Pajiban, Jennie "baxlala" Baxla was, in her own words, "murdered by cancer" last Tuesday. Jennie was an excellent writer and will long be remembered for her writing, including the year she titled each of her 52 reviews with a lyric from Hamilton. (Read her 52nd.)
