Life is just too short

Our friend Lindsay Beyerstein just lost her father, Dr. Barry Beyerstein; her moving note on his passing is here. My heartfelt condolences go out to Lindsay and to her family on their loss.
Here is a post entitled “Al Gore and the Alpha Girls,” from November 2002, one of the best blog posts you will ever read. Its author was Jim Capozzola of the Rittenhouse Review, who, I have had the privilege of meeting and corresponding with. I am sad to say that Jim passed away yesterday.
Dr. Beyerstein was 60. Jim was 45. Rest in peace, gentlemen. Rest in peace.
