Thanks so much for finding out for us Geoff. As you know, I had been worried about him. I am sorry too and will miss him a lot. He had some very funny and lighthearted posts. On the other hand, his knowledge of language showed a depth of understanding that rivaled anyone here. He was a talented limerick writer besides, especially with those off-color ones. And of course he never kept his political views a secret.
I will miss him dearly. Thanks again, Geoff, for following up on my hunch that he was sick.
