Have you ever noticed how nice members of this blog are? I have noticed over the years that this is almost always the case. This may have something to do with us, but I think a huge part of it has to do with the man we honor. I think there is something about him which invokes certain feelings in those about him. He didn’t try to hit us over the head with this. He made sure that he was ‘ bad boy’ enough to cover this up. I think one reason we honor him was that he was a Very decent human being and quite brave in the world and struggles he faced. I think that is what draws us to him. We get to be brave through him – he inspires us to fight and persevere for what’s right even when we’re paralyzed with fear.

I couldn’t get over how generous and thoughtful Karl was when he acknowledged David DeWitt and Lincoln Hurst. David has been the best managing this site – it would be pitiful without him. I don’t think we can ever thank him enough. The fact that Lincoln Hurst is a fan of Errol’s shows how he must have been a wonderful guy (Flynn, with all his difficulties). If you watch the Lincoln Hurst Family Memorial, it is clear that he was a wonderful, wonderful man. It makes me feel good as a human being to know that I was on the same planet as Lincoln Hurst (actually, I remember disagreeing in writing with something he said!).

Thanks for putting up with long comments, but I think some of these things needed to be said. This is a wonderful blog, and I don’t think this is by accident.
