I'll post a longer article when I have more time to do better justice to my memories of Eric, and to his extraordinary contributions through the decades to peace, freedom, and humanity.

[Addendum: A memorial gathering will be held Saturday, 10 February 2007, beginning at 1 p.m. at the Community Church of Boston at 565 Boylston St. (Copley Square), +1-617-266-6710. Feel free to contact me for more information]

He was one of the greatest people I ever knew-- I owe him more than I could ever repay
