Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

Light blogging this week

Charlotte Boggus, my mother-in-law, lived a full life, but died suddenly, sparing her family the long ordeal of passing that everyone dreads. A decidedly mixed blessing, I should say.

On a happier note, you can read about an honor given to my teacher, M. Richard Zinman, as well as some of his reflections on teaching, by clicking on this link, then clicking on "Publications" on the left sidebar, then on HConnections, and finally on pages 22-27 of "2005 in Review" (if there’s a better way, I can’t find it). Dick richly deserves the honor, and his thoughts are always worth reading.

While I can’t blame him for making me who I am today, he put me on the path to perdition, and I’m grateful.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. I was a classmate, of sorts, with Dick Zinman, having taken a class of Martin Diamond’s with him in fall, 1968, I believe, at Claremont Men’s College (as it was called then). He probably does not remember me, but I remember him as a serious student of good humor. Doubtless he was able to do for and with his students as his professors did for and with him.

I am sorry for your loss.

I copied and pasted the good story onto my blog, if any are interested in a bit more readable and accessible format.
