Re: Means and Ends (Joshua Cohen & Glenn Loury)
I just want to offer my condolences to Josh and Glenn. They have always been two of my favorites (I know it seems I say that about everyone, but really...)
Josh, I guess there's nothing to say beyond hang in there and try to enjoy as much of life as you can despite what you're going through. And take some joy in knowing that you do make a difference, even if it is only in inspiring fellow lefties with your all-too-uncommon proud (and eloquent) defense of the very fundamentals of liberalism. I hope you continue to write and opine and come here to spout long diatribes on the importance of the welfare state, for many more appearances.
Glenn, your story was heart-breaking to hear (and I'm truly sorry for your loss), but also inspiring to those of us just beginning to embark on long-term relationships, in showing the strength and power of such profound love. It sounds like you had a rather amazing gal and a rich and rewarding love that all can admire.
Thanks to both of you, for being so candid. I'm sure you are in the thoughts and prayers of many. --Uncle Eb
Such a fine line between clever and stupid.
