A funny email from a friend yesterday who described the year with the Glass as not half empty or full, but where's the glass?
To mourn the greatness of those who are no longer with us, gave me a moment of pause. William F. Buckley, Robert Mondavi, Sydney Pollack, Bo Diddley, Isaac Hayes, George Carlin, Studs Turkel, Aurthur C. Clarke, Chess grandmaster Bobby Fischer, Bettie Page, Sir Edmund Hillary, Paul Newman, Tim Russert, Alexander Solzhenitsyn, Eartha Kitt, Michael Crichton, William Gibson, Peter Camejo.
Locally, our community was directly impacted by the loss of former mayor Patrick O'Laughlin, Mark Achilli, Ben Goldman, Michael Halpin and Misti Frederick, the friendly School Secretary at R. J. Fisher Middle School.
The loss represents an amazing amount of brain power, philanthropic might, and artists that made our world a more beautiful place to be.
