For the memory of Henry
« on: October 27, 2009, 08:53:52 PM »
The parents of my son-in-law had a neighbor, Henry, a retired history professor and a very erudite, eloquent, cheerful man with whom the entire "hood" loved to converse.

About an hour ago, I heard from them that Henry had died. It was not quite unexpected because he had a chronic kidney disease. He is survived by his wife Genevieve, and several children and grandchildren.

Memory Eternal.

If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

Memory Eternal.
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.
