My sentiments entirely.  And add, to the above, Jim's determination
to remain an activist.  Few in academy today can approximate his
accomplishments.  I'll really miss Jim's voice.  I should have liked
him to live forever in the pink of health, always up for the good
fight (in politics as well as scholarship).
