In my previous post I mentioned that as this blog turned more toward the political, I had noticed that there were some interesting commenters that didn’t come around any more. Longtime readers will certainly recall one, in particular, who posted here frequently: an exceptionally intelligent, thoughtful, and articulate man by the name of Bob Koepp. He often disagreed with me, but it was always on solid intellectual principles, and he always kept me honest. He loved a good scrap as much as I do, and I greatly enjoyed having him around.
About a year ago he rather suddenly stopped commenting, and I had often wondered why.
Peace be upon you, my friend, and flights of angels sing thee to thy rest.
