Simon Peter Kinsella, an intern at the East Bay Express, passed away in his sleep at a friend's house last week. He was 29, and recently earned a master's degree from UC Berkeley's Graduate School of Journalism. The Express reports he hoped to parlay his internship to land a reporting job at either the Cincinnati Enquirer or Cleveland Plain-Dealer and later move to New York City, perhaps as a political writer.
