    Only the good die young. JFK, MLK, RFK, et al…
    This also explains Phyllis Schlaffly, Rush, Bunning, etc…

    Sad news indeed. His writing was brilliant.

    Hi, Maha,

    Did you leave me a comment at my blog asking me to get in touch with you? (Sorry, given everything that goes on, I am paranoid about just e-mailing blog people I feel I don’t know.)

    Interrobang: No, I didn’t leave a comment on your blog. Was this recently?

    Hi, Maha,

    Yes, fairly recently (blogger comments don’t have datestamps, but it had to have been in the last couple of weeks). Someone claiming to be you and using an e-mail at the maacenter.org domain posted a comment on my blog asking me to contact them about a “quick question.” Curiouser and curiouser.

    OK, it wasn’t me, and they aren’t supposed to be doing that. Thanks for letting me know.
