I had just started to get to know Sasha. I read some of his ideas on
his website, and communicated with him about something he wrote that
delighted me via email once or twice. We both lived in Cambridge and
shared a sense of the absurd nature of some city political stuff. I
mainly felt I was getting to know him the unique way you know a great
thinker through writings; you see a tantalizing glimpse of the wealth
of ideas, and in Sasha's case good humor, fun, and joy. I'm glad that
at least once I told him how delighted his ideas had made me.

I wish I had found you folks. I left thinking that I will miss Sasha
and remember him, and I will do more to fight such terrible tragedies
among my friends, any way I can. Like you, Perry and I spoke last
night and resolved to get our suspension arrangements addressed.

All the best,
